Cardiac involvement in myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is frequent with increased incidence of conduction disturbances and sudden cardiac death when compared with general population. We describe a 38-year-old man in whom the diagnosis of DM1 was made 8 years after occurrence of cardiac arrest owing to ventricular fibrillation and discuss management of DM1 patients at risk for sudden cardiac death.
