In a recent article, Pipitone et al.  reported about a fetus
with calcified left ventricular hypertrabeculation / noncompaction
(LVHT) and persistence of the abnormality after delivery . We
have the following comments and concerns regarding this paper.
LVHT is frequently associated with other cardiac abnormalities or
diseases of organs other than the heart. Was the index patient or
any of the relatives investigated for multisystem involvement? Was
there any indication for cerebral, ocular, otologic, endocrine, cardiac,
intestinal, renal, haematological, or cutaneous abnormalities in
addition to LVHT?
