Abstract

Cardiac amyloidosis is a rare cause of cardiomyopathy, reported exclusively in adults. We report the first known case presenting in childhood. A 12-year-old boy presented with syncope and diagnosed with ventricular non-compaction by echocardiography. Eventual genetic testing confirmed a TTR gene mutation associated with hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis.
