Isolated noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium is an unclassified cardiomyopathy and is thought to be due to arrest of myocardial morphogenesis. Fetal arrhythmias may occur in approximately half of the patients and account for the death in this disorder. We describe a patient with isolated noncompaction of the right ventricular myocardium in whom implantation of biventricular pacemaker was thought to be effective to prevent the risk of sudden cardiac death and complications.
