Exercise-induced syncope and Brugada syndrome.
Ann Pediatr Cardiol 2019 Sep-Dec; 12(3):292-294AP

Abstract

Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a hereditary condition that is characterized by ST elevation, ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation, and sudden cardiac death in otherwise healthy patients. Life-threatening arrhythmias generally occur, while at rest, with fever or during vagotonic states. Exercise is generally not considered a trigger for ventricular arrhythmias or syncope in patients with BrS. We describe a patient who presented with exercise-induced syncope, ventricular tachycardia during an exercise test, and was found to be both genotypically and phenotypically positive for BrS. This case highlights a potentially important role of exercise testing in diagnosing and risk stratifying certain patients with BrS.
