Abstract

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy is a rarely described cause of sudden death among infants. We report the case of a 4-month-old male infant who died suddenly in his sleep. Postmortem examination revealed the presence of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/ cardiomyopathy.
