Abstract

The first example of Uhl's disease affecting identical adult twins is reported, offering support for the contention that a congenital developmental defect or hereditable tendency is the responsible cause. In one case, echocardiography and nuclear angiography proved to be valuable in making the diagnosis. Uhl's disease in the adult should be suspected among cases of isolated right ventricular enlargement and failure complicated by ventricular dysrhythmias. The diagnosis may be made using a combination of noninvasive tests, obviating the need for cardiac catheterization.
