Abstract

We describe a 53-year-old man with recurrent syncopal events and a malignant family history who was treated for 13 years with sotalol drug therapy with no further occurrence of Brugada syndrome symptoms. Genetic testing revealed that he carried a Brugada syndrome sodium channel SCN5A mutation (4189delT). This finding suggests that sotalol may be of therapeutic benefit in such patients.
