Abstract

We present a clinical case of a 57-year-old patient with Brugada syndrome (BS), who presented with electrocardiographical features of BS type 2 in course of fever due to respiratory tract infection. Upon administration of flecainide ST segment elevation of type 1 was induced. As the patient had no clinical symptoms and no spontaneous abnormalities of ST segment, he did not receive an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator.
