Pulsus alternans is usually found in patients with reduced systolic ventricular function. We describe a patient with shortness of breath, hypertension, and left ventricular hypertrophy, but with normal left and right systolic function. Pulsus alternans was demonstrated in the pulmonary wedge position, pulmonary artery, and right ventricle, but not in the aorta or left ventricle.
