A 13-year male patient with a history of tachycardia attacks was diagnosed to have left posterior fascicular ventricular tachycardia (VT) according to the electrocardiogram (ECG) obtained at the emergency service. This diagnosis was confirmed with advanced electrophysiological studies and the case was diagnosed by genetic evaluation, which was performed to reveal the underlying cause, to have Brugada type 2 syndrome that might be associated with sudden cardiac death. Underlying causes should be evaluated, although idiopathic VTs generally have a good prognosis.
