Myocardial non-compaction (NC) is a rare genetic cardiomyopathy commonly believed to develop an intrauterine arrest of endomyocardial morphogenesis. NC is characterized by markedly hypertrabeculations in left ventricle or both ventricles with deep intertrabecular recesses. NC is usually seen isolated, but sometimes other congenital heart abnormalities may accompany to the myocardial NC. In this article we have presented an adult patient with biventricular myocardial NC cardiomyopathy accompanied by severe valvular pulmonary stenosis and patent foramen ovale.
