AB  - A 20-year-old woman presented with palpitations. Echocardiography demonstrated a 
      left ventricular mass involving the posterolateral apical wall and protruding
      into the ventricular cavity. Evaluation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
      suggested fatty consistency with all edges well defined except the medial, which 
      was ill defined, raising concern for an invasive liposarcoma. Open core needle
      biopsy demonstrated mature adipocytes infiltrating the myocardium with extensive 
      interstitial fibrosis. The diagnosis was left-dominant arrhythmogenic
      cardiomyopathy. Two-year MRI follow-up demonstrates no change in size. This case 
      illustrates the use and limits of cardiac MRI and the value of open cardiac
      biopsy in diagnosis.
