Sudden cardiac death from ventricular fibrillation (VF) typically occurs in patients with structural heart disease, but in 5 to 10 percent VF is "idiopathic," occurring in normal hearts. Recently, there has been the description and growing recognition of patients with VF that has a focal origin, the common sites being in the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) and sites in the left ventricle. A focus within the right ventricle outside the RVOT is rare. We present a case of a woman with VF storm that was localized to the inferobasal right ventricle and was successfully treated with radiofrequency ablation.
