Abstract

Brugada syndrome is an electrocardiography (ECG) abnormality with a high incidence of sudden death in patients. It is characterized by typical ECG abnormalities such as ST elevation in precordial leads. Brugada syndrome is due to a mutation in the cardiac sodium channel genes. This syndrome can lead to a dangerous rhythm disorders such as ventricular fibrillation. Herein we presented a case who did not have any cardiac disorder, however had ventricular tachycardia and type 1 Brugada ECG pattern seen with cardiac arrest.
