A young man with VT (LBBB morphology ) and apparently normal heart by echocardiogram is a real diagnostic challenge .
Here is a comparison of the two closely mimicking entities. RVOT VT and ARVD .
(Caution : In the traditional medical teaching system , we are often taught to differentiate two closely related entities.Our brain also loves to look things in either black or white . Realise , medical science always brings surprises . There can be significant overlaps between the very entities we want to differentiate.Bear that in mind)
*RVOT- Right ventricular outflow tract. ARVD/ARVC -Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia /cardiomyopathy
