Isolated left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) is a rare hereditary cardiomyopathy characterized by prominent intraventricular trabeculations separated by deep intertrabecular recessus. While cardiac ischemia due to microvascular dysfunction is common in these patients, ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is rare and usually seen as a consequence of coincidental coronary artery disease.
