Abstract

Left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy which predisposes to sudden cardiac death. We describe the case of a 24 year-old man who had previously received an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator for sustained ventricular tachycardia and was later diagnosed with left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy during a hospitalisation for device infection.
