Isolated left ventricular noncompaction is an inherited cardiomyopathy characterized by multiple prominent trabeculations with deep intertrabecular recesses. The diagnosis is often missed because echocardiography poses inherent problems of poor echo window in assessment of the LV apex, which is most commonly involved in noncompaction. We report a case in which conventional 2D echocardiography failed to demonstrate multiple prominent trabeculations. Contrast echocardiography confirmed the presence of multiple trabeculations with deep intertrabecular recesses. This report emphasizes the importance of contrast echocardiography in the diagnosis of ventricular noncompaction. (Echocardiography ****;**:E1-E3).
