Abstract

A 21-week gestational age foetus was diagnosed with left ventricular non-compaction, Ebstein’s anomaly, sinus bradycardia, first-degree heart block, and agenesis of the ductus venosus. The prognosis was guarded given the constellation of findings, and the foetus was monitored closely. Despite a potentially poor outcome, the foetus survived. Prognosis in foetally diagnosed left ventricular non-compaction is usually poor; however, rarely, foetuses can survive postnatally.
