CASE REPORT

Abstract

Since the first publication of the Brugada syndrome in 1992 several variants of this ECG pattern have been described. We report a very unusual case of preexcitation with changing electrocardiographic morphologies which appeared to be an association of a variable Brugada pattern with a persistent antegrade preexcitation.
