Supplementary material

Movie clip 1 Two-dimensional echocardiogram. The apical four-chamber view shows complete obliteration of the apical portion of the right ventricle. (MOV 2529 kb)

Movie clip 2 Color echocardiogram in an apical four-chamber view showing dense obliteration of the right ventricle apex and severe tricuspid regurgitation. (MOV 2773 kb)

Movie clip 3 Two-dimensional echocardiogram in a parasternal long axis view showing obliteration of the right ventricle apex as well as involvement of the left ventricle lateral wall with thickening of the posterior mitral leaflet. (MOV 2332 kb)

Movie clip 4 Two-dimensional echocardiogram in a parasternal short axis view showing complete replacement of the right ventricular cavity. Infiltration is seen in the left ventricle also. (MOV 2089 kb)
