Isolated left ventricular noncompaction (ILVNC) is a form of cardiomyopathy caused by the intrauterine failure of the myocardium to compact (endomyocardial morphogenesis) resulting in multiple trabeculations of the left ventricular myocardium and deep intertrabecular recesses and thickened myocardium. The condition is relatively uncommon and is often complicated by heart failure, malignant arrhythmias, and thromboembolism. There have been a few reports of this condition from some parts of Africa (Djibouti, Sudan, and South Africa). To the best of our knowledge, there has not been previous report from Nigeria. The purpose of this paper is to report a case of ILVNC from Ibadan, Nigeria.
