Abstract

Haissaguerre syndrome is an association between the sudden cardiac arrest and the J — point elevation with characteristic changes in the QRS complex — slurring or notching in the ECG leads II, III, aVF and/or I, aVL, V4–V6. During diagnostic we have to consider another causes of ST segment elevation for example ST segment elevation myocardial infarction, acute pericarditis, hypervagotonia, Brugada syndrome.
