We report the case of a 54-year-old woman with idiopathic VT originating in the left ventricular outflow tract. She initially presented with palpitations and light-headedness. The morphology of the PVCs exhibited an inferior axis and tall R waves were noted in all the precordial leads. Spontaneous PVCs were transiently terminated by an intravenous injection of adenosine triphosphate. Radiofrequency catheter ablation from the left sinus of Valsalva successfully abolished the PVCs and the VT.
