      Abstract

      Noncompaction cardiomyopathy is a recently described rare congenital cardiomyopathy; patients can be asymptomatic or develop diastolic and/or systolic left ventricular dysfunction with heart failure, systemic emboli or ventricular arrhythmias. Long-term prognosis is poor. Currently, diagnosis is based on findings on 2D echocardiography; in the current case report we demonstrate the use of MRI to diagnose noncompaction cardiomyopathy.
