Not isolated ventricular compaction in an infant

Not isolated ventricular compaction in an infant

Annales de Cardiologie et d'Angeiologie 65(2): 111-113

Not isolated ventricular compaction cardiomyopathy is a rare deasese described both in children than in adults. It due to the interruption of the embryogenic compaction process of the normal myocardium. We report a pediatric observation of noncompaction of the left ventricle. This is a 4-month girl who was admitted to an array of heart failure with systolic murmur to FM. Chest radiography showed cardiomegaly. The ECG showed repolarization disorder. The echocardiography objectified dilated left cavities with thickened wall and anechoic areas (sinusoidal), a mitral regurgitation GII and minimal tricuspid regurgitation. NCVI is a rare cause of heart failure in infants. The management is based on guidelines for various clinical symptomatology. Its discovery in children should lead to screening of first-degree relative.
