Myocardial Bridging is one rare congenital anomaly which has been neither reported frequently nor looked for during routine autopsy in Indian context. One of the reasons may be lack of awareness about this finding. Even many autopsy studies done on sudden natural cardiac deaths, do not focus to find and report this anomaly. We hereby report one such case, where a young adult male succumbed to death following exercise, and only significant autopsy finding was Myocardial bridging. Even though myocardial bridging has not been labelled as primary cause of death by researchers, it is one such anomaly which leads to events predisposing angina, ischemia and arrhythmia leading to cardiac arrest.
Keywords: Sudden death, Myocardial bridging, Tunnelled segment, Milking effect, LADA.
