Resumo

Left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) is a rare form of cardiomyopathy characterized by prominent left ventricular (LV) trabeculae, deep intertrabecular recesses, and the thin compacted layer. The disease is potentially associated with sudden cardiac death due to LV dysfunction and ventricular arrhythmias. The presence of accessory pathway and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is particularly rare in adults. Here we describe the rare association of LVNC and ventricular pre-excitation in an 18-year-old female with neonatal hypoxic brain injury. 

Keywords: Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome; pre-excitation syndromes; isolated noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium
