Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia or cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is a pathologic condition where the right ventricle is partially or totally replaced by fatty and fibrous tissue. The electrocardiogram (ECG) has a central role for diagnosis since it comprises two major and two minor criteria in the diagnostic criteria published by the Task 1 Force, although it is not 100% necessary to make a final diagnosis, because around 10% of patients with ARVD/C present with a normal ECG.
