AB  - BACKGROUND: Brugada syndrome is a genetic disorder that increases an individual's
      risk for sudden cardiac death and ventricular dysrhythmias that was first
      described by the Brugada brothers in 1992. Brugada syndrome is characterized by
      an atypical electrocardiogram pattern that includes a bundle branch block and
      ST-segment elevation in the precordial leads. CASE REPORT: A 74-year-old man had 
      a cardiac arrest at the time of a low-speed motor vehicle collision. When
      emergency medical services arrived, the patient was in torsades de pointes. After
      resuscitation and return of spontaneous circulation, the patient was transferred 
      to a Level I trauma center. He was ultimately diagnosed with Brugada syndrome
      after exclusion of traumatic injuries. WHY SHOULD AN EMERGENCY PHYSICIAN BE AWARE
      OF THIS?: Brugada syndrome is still considered a "cannot miss" diagnosis in the
      emergency department, whether a patient presents with or without symptoms. In the
      mixed setting of trauma as a result of cardiac arrest, accurate diagnosis can be 
      difficult due to the "chicken or the egg" dilemma.
