See More

ABSTRACT: Brugada syndrome is an inherited form of arrythmogenic disease associated with a coved-type STsegment elevation in right precordial leads and an increased risk of sudden cardiac death due to ventricular fibrillation (VF) in young, otherwise healthy adults. Electrical storm is malignant but rare in patients with Brugada syndrome. This is the case of a patient who was diagnosed with Brugada syndrome with repetitive discharges of implantable cardioverter defibrillator during episodes of ventricular tachycardia/VF. The patient was given oral quinidine, which successfully suppressed the recurrence of electrical storms.
