Non-compaction cardiomyopathy is a relatively rare cardiac condition known to be found in 0.12 per 100,000 cases characterized by increased trabeculations in the ventricular wall due to embryologic malformation predisposing malignant ventricular arrhythmias [1,2]. Although acute postviral myocarditis has been well-documented in the medical literature, co-existence of these two clinical entities is extremely uncommon [3-5].
