Supraventricular Tachyarrhythmia and Brugada Syndrome: A Case of Atrial Fibrillation and Brugada Syndrome in a Young Patient Without Structural Heart Disease



We report a case of a 29-year old man who initially presented with a single episode of syncope. The initial electrocardiogram (ECG) showed atrial fibrillation and an ST segment elevation on lead V1. A flecainide test unmasked the Brugada syndrome. The pathophysiology of Brugada syndrome and atrial fibrillation in this patient could be connected by sodium channel dysfunction throughout the heart. In addition, we reviewed the possible connection between Brugada syndrome and atrial fibrillation.
