A 32-year-old young male was found to have non-sustained, repetitive, monomorphic ventricular tachycardia of right bundle branch morphology during routine pre-anaesthetic evaluation for orthopaedic surgery. Echocardiography and left ventricular angiogram were suggestive of isolated non-compaction of left ventricular apex with systolic dysfunction. He was successfully managed with anti-arrhythmic drugs and had an uneventful 9-month follow-up. The index case is an unusual association of asymptomatic, non-sustained ventricular tachycardia with isolated ventricular non-compaction.
