We report a case of 11 month old male child who presented to emergency department with generalised tonic clonic movements. Cardiac examination showed a systolic murmur in left parasternal area. Echocardiogram revealed a 2 mm small perimembranous ventricular septal defect along with LV non-compaction. LV systolic function was normal. He was managed with anti-epileptics and is on regular follow up. This case demonstrates the rare association of ventricular septal defect with LV non compaction.
