Abstract

Polymorphic ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation are the most common arrhythmias in Brugada syndrome causing syncope or sudden death. Sustained monomorphic ventricular tachycardias are rare in this context. We report of a patient with syncopal episodes due to episodes of sustained ventricular tachycardia, where a Type-I Brugada pattern was revealed after pharmacological provocation with procainamide.
