Rajani P., Wong J., Robertus JL., Riesgo Gil F., SHANMUGANATHAN M.
A young man presented with syncope. He was diagnosed with triglyceride deposit cardiomyovasculopathy and skeletal myopathy secondary to adipose triglyceride lipase (ATGL) deficiency. Despite optimal medical therapy, he required heart transplantation to treat his heart failure. Five years post-transplant, the graft function was normal with no evidence of triglyceride deposits.
