Özet

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) and primary cardiac tumours are rare conditions among heart diseases. In this case report we present an 18-year-old woman with ventricular tachycardia and intracardiac mass originating from interventricular septum. Clinical and pathological evaluation led to the diagnosis of invasive intramyocardial lipoma originated in an ARVD background. To our knowledge, this is the first case with a huge intramyocardial lipoma developed in a patient with ARVD.
