Abstract

A two‐year‐old child with massive cardiomegaly was proved to have restrictive cardiomyopathy. A literature search has shown only two other cases of this in young children. All three have had massive biatrial dilatation with nearly normal ventricular function. This case is the first with clearly defined echocardiography and complicating diagnostic features associated with persistence of a left superior vena cava.
