We report an interesting case of a 20-year-old man who was admitted in intensive cardiac care unit with congestive cardiac failure along with thromboembolic manifestations and a raised erythrocyte sedimentation rate. On the basis of two-dimensional echocardiography, he was diagnosed as left ventricular noncompaction syndrome. However, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ruled out noncompaction. After extensive workup, the patient was diagnosed with Takayasu aortoarteritis. Post therapy, the patient has normal cardiac function and cardiac MRI without thromboembolic event in 8 years' follow-up.
