Abstract

Introduction: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD), a cardiomyopathy characterized by fibrofatty degeneration of the myocardium with progressive dysfunction, electrical instability, and sudden death, occurs in approximately 1 in 5000 people in the United States.
Case Presentation: We present a nine-year-old girl complaining of dyspnea, easy fatigability and skin lesions. She had a history of an occasional epistaxis and weakness since 20 days before her admission, accompanied by the symptoms and signs of common cold, specially cough, during the last two days.
Conclusions: This case does confirm that dilated cardiomyopathy’s spectrum is wider than ever known and that like what happened at the congress of Boston in 2006, a more comprehensive approach to its genetic types needs to be done.
