Abstract

A neonatal case of left ventricular noncompaction associated with trisomy 18: Left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) is a rare congenital cardiomyopathy and exact etiology is still unknown. Trisomy 18 is the second most common autosomal trisomy in live-born infants. LVNC has been described in association with other dysmorphic features, association with trisomy 18 has not been reported previously in a neonate. LVNC broadens the cardiac anomalies associated with trisomy 18.
