Ventricular non-compaction occurs due to failure in myocardial morphogenesis during the fetal period. Patients can have heart failure, as well as systemic complications due to thromboembolism and cardiac arrhythmias. Early diagnosis is essential. We present the case of an asymptomatic 49-year-old woman who initially manifested ventricular extrasystoles and heart failure with reduced ejection fraction and a myocardial noncompaction diagnosis.
