Abstract

A case of a 48-year-old male admitted to the hospital because of recurrent chest pain, is described. Further diagnostic tests did not confirm ischemia, but revealed the presence of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. During hospital stay, the patient developed syncopal episode due to ventricular tachycardia. A cardioverter-defibrillator was implanted.
