Isolated Ventricular Non-Compaction Syndrome, Rare Cause of Recurrent Stroke in Young - A Case Report

Strokes in young adults are uncommon and often a diagnostic challenge. It can cause morbidity, motality and hamper quality of life. A cardiogenic cerebral embolus is one of the most common causes of stroke in the young, accounting for up to one third of the cases. In this article we describe a rare case of isolated left ventricle non compaction as an etiology for recurrent strokes in young individuals. Echocardiography often provides the first clue to diagnose.

Furthermore, lifelong systemic anticoagulation is indicated to obviate risk for thromboembolism and reduce the recurrences of further morbid states.
