Prenatal fetal echocardiography studies detected large multiple cardiac rhabdomyomas and led to the diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis. Despite episodes of bradyarrhythmias and severe lung compression in utero, the neonate did well and was discharged home on day 20 of life. On day 30 of life, the infant expired at home from cardiac arrest secondary to arrhythmia.
