Isolated noncompaction of left ventricular myocardium is a rare congenital heart disease, characterized by an excessive prominence of trabecular meshwork, spaced out by deep intertrabecular recesses, consequent to the arrest of the normal myocardial embryogenesis. Although there are numerous descriptions, the pathophysiological effects of the structural alterations, like the clinical spectrum and the evolution of the disease, are not fully clarified. In this paper we evaluated the natural history of the disease, the family incidence and the alterations of the systolic and diastolic function. An interesting case report is described concerning a patient affected by noncompaction and atrial fibrillation.
