Abstract

Abstract: A case of a 33-year-old male who was admitted to the hospital due to recurrent ventricular fibrillation during a febrile illness is presented. Initially, the patient was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction and received thrombolytic treatment. Echocardiography and coronary angiography were normal. Right precordial ECG leads recorded one and two intercostal spaces higher than normal as well as ECG obtained following ajmaline administration revealed a typical Brugada pattern.
