INTRODUCTION: Left Ventricular Noncompaction Cardiomyopathy (LVNC) is a rare form of cardiomyopathy with an abnormal thick myocardium and multiple trabeculations of endocardial layer. Clinical manifestation of LVNC includes chest pain, syncope, arrhythmia, sudden cardiac arrest, and thromboembolism. Electrocardiogram in these patients could show different abnormalities such as left or right bundle branch block, fascicular block, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular tachycardia. An association of LVNC with sinus bradycardia or Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome has been described in some cases .
