Background: Double-chambered left ventricle (DCLV) is a rare congenital anomaly, and only a few cases in which a 2-chambered LV is separated by the interventricular septum or an abnormal muscle bundle have been reported in the literature. Frequently, such cases are diagnosed when a patient is admitted to hospital for the evaluation of a cardiac murmur, and most of these patients have isolated DCLV.
