We report a unique association of rheumatic heart disease with left ventricular (LV) noncompaction cardiomyopathy in an octogenarian. He had severe mitral stenosis with severe LV systolic dysfunction secondary to noncompaction. Although the association of rheumatic heart disease with LV, noncompaction cardiomyopathy has been described sparsely in the literature, our case is a unique illustration of the presence of LV noncompaction cardiomyopathy contributing toward severe LV systolic dysfunction in rheumatic mitral stenosis in an octogenarian with no coronary artery disease.
