Abstract

In five children from the same family who died after unexplained cardiac arrest, Brugada syndrome syndrome was suspected based on the transient manifestation of the typical electrocardiogram pattern in one of them. A mutation in the cardiac sodium-channel confirmed the diagnosis of Brugada syndrome, which suggests that this disease may cause sudden death in children.
