Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is characterized by progressive fibro fatty replacement of the right ventricular myocardium which constitutes a substrate for electrical instability and a focus of ventricular arrhythmias. Most of the patients have some degree of left ventricular involvement which also affects the right ventricle by the same disease process. From thirty percent to 50% of patients with ARVD have a family history of the disease. The most common pattern of inheritance is autosomal dominant. Clinically, ARVD usually presents with ventricular arrhythmias, and there is approving evidence that this is the underlying disease in a substantial number of sudden deaths among young, especially healthy individuals. The diagnosis of ARVD relies on the presence of structural and functional abnormalities of the right ventricle, electrophysiological abnormalities, and family history. The imaging modalities are conventional angiography, echocardiography (ECO), radionuclide angiography, ultra fast computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. (MRI). We are presenting a case of ARVD with ECO, computed tomography (CT), and MRI findings.
