Can I die from arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy?

Because arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is associated with sudden cardiac death as a possible symptom, you can die from ARVC. This symptom is not found in everybody who has been diagnosed, but it is a possibility. If you have been diagnosed, following up with and taking the medical recommendations made by your cardiologist are imperative.
