Abstract
We describe a case of tropical right ventricular (RV) endomyocardial fibrosis. By CMR, a typical pattern of RV dilatation with apical obliteration was found, and late gadolinium enhancement of the obliterated part was present, confirming fibrosis. By T1-mapping, myocardial extracellular volume was elevated suggesting associated intramyocardial interstitial fibrosis and highlighting the importance of tissue characterisation to diagnose this condition.
