Abstract

The Brugada syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder with variable expression characterized by abnormal findings on the surface electrocardiogram (ECG) in conjunction with an increased risk of ventricular tachyarrhythmias and sudden cardiac death . Typically, the ECG findings consist of a pseudo-right bundle branch block and persistent ST segment elevation in leads V1 to V2. We present a rare case of spontaneous Type I Brugada secondary to drug overdose with cocaine and benzodiazepines in a young male patient who eventually received automated implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD).
