[Liquorice consumption may induce torsades de pointes ventricular tachycardia].

Abstract

This case report describes an often forgotten cause of hypokalaemia resulting in electrocardiograpic changes in a 75-year-old man known with hypertension, atrial fibrillation and ischaemic heart disease. A detailed anamnesis, a prompt replacement of potassium and cessation of liquorice consumption resulted in a favourable outcome.
