English Abstract

Patients presenting with convulsions are sometimes incorrectly treated for epilepsy, as these symptoms may be manifestations of underlying cardiac disease. Brugada syndrome, associated with an elevated risk of developing fatal arrhythmic events, is a rare disorder characterized by a unique electrocardiographic pattern. The typical clinical presentation mainly involves syncope of unclear cause or sudden death. Seizures are uncommon clinical manifestations of Brugada syndrome, and reports of status epilepticus as initial presentation of Brugada syndrome are extremely rare. In this case report, we present a male patient with a typical pattern on 12-lead electrocardiography, following resuscitation for generalized convulsive status epilepticus.
