    A 34 year-old male patient presented with recurrent attack of palpitation and chest pain due to Wolf Parkinson White syndrome (WPWS). Two dimensional echocardiography demonstrated features of Ebstein’s anomaly along with biventricular non compaction. Color flow Doppler studies confirmed the presence of blood flow within the trabeculations. Biventricular myocardial non-compaction associated with Ebstein’s anomaly who presented with WPWS is a very rare association. So far, Medline search revealed only three reported cases in the literatures. The patient was treated with radiofrequency ablation of right sided posteroseptal accessory pathway of WPWS and was asymptomatic in further follow-up.

    Key words: Ebstein’s anomaly, Non compaction of myocardium, Radiofrequency ablation, Wolf Parkinson White syndrome.
