Overview

ARVD should be suspected in a young person or athlete who dies prematurely. An autopsy can help to establish the diagnosis of ARVD and to alert surviving family members about their risk of sudden cardiac death. ARVD is associated with full thickness substitution of the RV myocardium by fatty or fibro-fatty tissue on histologic examination.
