Brugada-type ECG with polymorphic ventricular tachycardia: a red herring for isolated right ventricular infarction.

PMID:  14559142     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present a patient with Brugada-type ECG abnormalities and recurrent polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT). Subsequent investigations confirmed the diagnosis of isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction. The VT resolved after the 1st day and was not inducible subsequently. This case illustrates the importance of a careful study of the ECG to exclude other conditions in a patient with Brugada-type ECG abnormalities.
