A 30-year-old woman presented with dull left-sided chest pain, radiating to her left arm, lasting seconds on each episode. She denied any palpitations or dyspnoea and had no cardiovascular risk factors or family history of sudden death. A twelve-lead electro cardiogram showed normal sinus rhythm at 70/min with no acute changes. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed normal left ventricular size and function, however, note was made of prominent trabeculations in the left ventricle.
