Abstract

Left ventricular non-compaction is an overall rare cardiomyopathy; however, it is increasingly being recognized with advances in imaging technology. We present the case of a 47-year-old man with new diagnosis of heart failure and left ventricular non-compaction. We review the literature regarding diagnostic imaging criteria and management of this condition.
