Abstract

In this chapter, we present several cases from our practice with known or suspected ARVC/D, with representative imaging (CMR, ECHO) and ECG data where available, in the form of a short clinical vignette along with an important "teaching point" we created based on the analysis of these cases. ARVC/D is a disease requiring significant systematic process of considering all the clinical data, as there is no single "gold standard" in the diagnosis and management of the disorder. Our cases include typical patients with definitive ARVC/D, cases where the findings are borderline for the disease, cases with positive family history of ARVC/D, and/or genotype-positive family member. These cases were not previously published. We hope these vignettes would help our readers in understanding the diagnostic process and our clinical approach to the ARVC/D patients.
