Abstract

We report two cases of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) in the pediatric age group. In both cases, the diagnosis was considered and pursued but would not be made utilizing Task Force Criteria. The diagnosis was made based on the morphology of a single beat during exercise testing. We illustrate the difficulty of diagnosing ARVC in the young even with a heightened index of suspicion.
