A case report of a patient with syncope and family history of sudden death is presented. The precordial recordings in the standard 12-lead ECG showed a right bundle-branch block pattern with persistent ST elevation in V1 and V2-V3. After a thorough evaluation, we found no underlying organic cardiomyopathy. The diagnosis of symptomatic Brugada syndrome was made. A cardioverter-defibrillator was implanted.
