A 20-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for treatment of verapamil sensitive idiopathic left ventricular tachycardia (ILVT). During the electrophysiologic study (EPS), no sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) could be induced both at baseline and after infusion of isoproterenol. However, sustained clinical VT could be easily induced with single ventricular extrastimulation following intravenous administration of pilsicainide, a class Ic sodium channel blocker. The arrhythmia was ablated with radiofrequency catheter ablation.
