  • A 23-year-old man had cardiac arrest during physical exercise. He was resuscitated by emergency
    defibrillation.

  • The patient had no prior medical history.
  • Contrast-enhanced cardiac CT was performed to look for a coronary anomaly. Additional images on
    both ventricles were obtained.
