  restrictive (infiltrative) CMP, soon however the heart will become flaccid and systolic function will decrease, then dilated CMP will be manifest. choose restrictive if two are in the choices but know that it may also be manifest like dilated CMP later.

  any infiltrative condition will do the same/ first restrictive and than over the period of type dilated. exampleas are hematochromatosis, amyloid, sarccoidosis, loeffler syndrome, elastosis and primary systemic sclerosis (crest in the very late stage).
