Abstract
Isolated left ventricular noncompaction is either a distinct cardiomyopathy or a morphologic trait shared by several different types of cardiomyopathies. Although there is no current gold standard for its diagnosis, cardiac imaging is the most commonly accepted modality. Described is a case of left ventricular noncompaction that resolved 2 years after the initial diagnosis.
