ملخص

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by fatty degeneration of the right ventricular myocardium with variable involvement of the left ventricle. The condition is associated with exercise-mediated ventricular tachycardia and is one of the recognized causes of sudden cardiac death in the young and in athletes. Here, we report the first confirmed case of ARVC in Oman and present its electrocardiographic, echocardiographic features, and radiological findings on gated, contrast-enhanced cardiac computed tomography. Our patient was a 22-year-old male who had presented to our hospital for evaluation and investigation of syncope and symptomatic palpitations.
