    Abstract

    Replacement of the myocardium by fibrous and adipose tissue is well documented in the right ventricle, but has been rarely described in the left ventricle. We present two cases of extensive fibrofatty infiltration of the left ventricle without significant right ventricular involvement in young men whose presenting symptom was sudden death.
