ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Left Ventricular Non Compaction

History: A 38 year old female presented to clinic with symptoms of new onset fatigue and dyspnea on exertion. The patient’s family history was significant for a brother with known history of cardiomyopathy and sudden cardiac death of the patient’s mother in her 40s.

Findings: Abnormal left ventricular dilatation with noncompacted myocardium of the inferior and lateral walls of the mid ventricle as well as apex. The ratio of non compacted to compacted myocardium was measured at 2.4 in the short axis view of the left ventricle at the end of diastole. The patient was also noted to have a small ASD, and there were no noted abnormalities of the coronary vasculature.

Ddx: --Physiologic trabeculations --Left Ventricular Noncompaction --Dilated cardiomyopathy --Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Dxhow: MRI

Exam: Vital signs: • Blood pressure-- Elevated diastolic BP. RR was normal. Cardiovascular system: No Jugular Venous Distention Normal Heart Rate And Rhythm No murmurs were heard.

No MeSH data available.
