Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Brugada syndrome is a disorder characterized by sudden death or potentially malignant ventricular tachyarrhythmias associated in the most typical cases with an electrocardiographic (ECG) pattern combining a coved type ST elevation (≥0, 2 mV), a negative T wave and a "pseudo" right bundle branch block (RBBB) morphology in two or more right precordial leads (1-3). In this report we demonstrate that a "true" high degree RBBB can conceal the typical ST elevation in right precordial leads that is essential for the diagnosis of Brugada syndrome.
