We present the case of a 57 year-old patient that presented to our Institution with a positive treadmill stress test. Coronary angiography revealed an intermediate stenosis of the right coronary artery evaluated with a fractional flow reserve (FFR), complicated by torsade de pointes. Despite this being a very rare arrhythmic complication during FFR, its prompt recognition and treatment are of utmost importance.
