General Discussion
Brugada syndrome is a rare inherited cardiovascular disorder characterized by disturbances affecting the electrical system of the heart. The main symptom is irregular heartbeats and, without treatment, may potentially result in sudden death. In some cases, no symptoms may precede sudden death. Brugada syndrome may be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait.
