Abstract

A 20-year-old white judoka was admitted for severe palpitations during exercise followed by syncope. The electrocardiogram on admission revealed a wide-complex monomorphic tachycardia at a rate of 260 beats/min, with right bundle brunch block morphology and right axis deviation. Following electrical cardioversion, the electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm with type 1 pattern of Brugada syndrome. We describe in detail the clinical course, the results of electrophysiological study, and therapeutic management. We reviewed literature data concerning a few cases of 'atypical Brugada syndrome' characterized by monomorphic ventricular tachycardia as clinical arrhythmia.
