In a 50-year-old man presenting with dyspnoea and palpitations, cardiomegaly, incomplete right bundle branch block and bursts of ventricular tachycardia, Two-Dimensional Echocardiography revealed an impressive enlargement of the right ventricle, particulary in the outflow tract. Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia was suggested and confirmed by right ventricular angiography and electrophysiologic study. We emphasize the role of Two-Dimensional Echocardiography in the appropriate planning of cardiac catheterization for a definitive diagnosis of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia.
