dentist  Sorry, you narrowed it down to HOCM, MVP, and LA myoxma, but I only see LA myxoma as an answer choice. Wouldn't you have been able to stop right there? +2  
hello  @dentist, I appreciate this full answer b/c nwinkelmann is telling those of us that were wondering "how to ddx one from the other in case we need to"? +4  
hello  @dentist btw, HOCM is an answer choice (RVOT is part of HOCM) +3  
thotcandy  @hello but since that's pseudo-aortic stenosis, it would present with a systolic murmur, correct? +

bigjimbo  Left atrial myxoma can mimic mitral stenosis (thus diastolic murmur) +1  
btl_nyc  RVOT obstruction would cause a systolic murmur that gets louder when standing, not diastolic. +2  
snripper  RVOT obstruction = Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy which causes diastolic dysfunction (S3) not a systolic murmur. +
