Abstract

We present a case of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC)-Naxos disease. The patient is 21-year-old male with no history of previous heart disease admitted in a private hospital for rhythm disorder in heart. The condition was diagnosed as ventricular tachycardia (VT) and was treated with cardioversion. The patient was referred to our hospital for further evaluation. On examination patient had palmoplantar keratoderma, wooly hair, and dystrophic nails. The cardiovascular system examination was clinically normal. His electrocardiogram showed epsilon wave in lead V1; echocardiography showed hypo-echogenic tissues in the right ventricular (RV) apex and free wall; magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) investigation revealed fibrofatty replacement of RV free wall and dyskinetic RV wall with diastolic outbulging.
