Isolated left ventricular noncompaction (ILVNC) is a congenital abnormality in the structure of ventricular tissue due to amorphogenetic defect during embryogenesis. This rare entity can be easily diagnosed by the characteristic appearance of prominent trabeculations and deep inter-trabecular spaces. Clinical manifestations of this disease include benign and malignant ventricular arrhythmia, congestive heart failure signs, cardio-embolic events (stroke), mitral and pulmonary valve incompetence, and reduced global ventricular systolic function. We present the case report of a 58-year-old man with ILVNC.
