Arrhymogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is afamilıal. progressive heartmuscle disease. lt is clıaracterized by fatty infiltration of the right ventricle. w/ı i c lı frequently results in life threatening cardiac arrlıytlımias. lt is one oj the importaııt causes of sudden cardiac eleatlı in tlıe young.
