The left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC) is a primary cardiomyopathy and is characteriezed by prominent trabeculations on the luminal surface of the ventricle and deep inter-trabecular recesses (DITR) communicating whith ventricular lumen and regional wall motion abnormalities. The diagnosis of LVNC is generally made whith transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI). The spectrums of clinic are highly variables, ranging from no symptoms to progressive deterioration in cardiac function which results in congestive heart failure, systemic thromboembolism, life threatening ventricular arrhythmias, and sudden cardiac death (SCD). A case of LVNC with sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) was presented. An implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) was implanted because of the individual’s high SCD risk.
