Histopathological characteristics of the arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy presenting the electrocardiographic characteristics with Brugada syndrome.

INTRODUCTION: The histopathological characteristics of the overlapping disease states of Brugada syndrome (BrS) and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) have not been fully elucidated.

METHODS: A 71-year-old man showed coved-type ST-segment elevation with the right precordial leads, and the echocardiography demonstrated right ventricular (RV) dilatation. After 11 months, he died of a polymorphic VT storm.

RESULTS: The pathological tissue demonstrated fibrofatty degeneration in the free wall of the RV outflow tract based on the heart autopsy.

CONCLUSION: The overlapping disease states of BrS and ARVC showed histopathological characteristics consistent with ARVC.
