Abstract

We report a case of a 42-year-old Caucasian man who presented with isolated right ventricular failure and atrial fibrillation without ventricular arrhythmia. In this report, we describe accurate evaluation by MR imaging confirmed by histopathologic findings as well as imaging progression of this unusual case of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia.
