An adolescent with possible arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia and long QT syndrome: evaluation and management

Ann Noninvasive Electrocardiol. 2013 Jan;18(1):75-8. doi: 10.1111/anec.12043.

Abstract

We describe a unique presentation of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) in a 14-year-old Caucasian male who was additionally diagnosed with long QT syndrome (LQTS). Genetic testing eventually confirmed the diagnosis of both ARVD and LQTS, which combined, to our knowledge, has not been reported in the literature.
