The paper presents a case of a 20-year-old student with a history of cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation. The episode of cardiac arrest occurred when the patient did not complain of any health problems, and there was no visible structural heart disease. Consequently, permanent anoxaemic brain damage was observed. Based on ECG examination, the Brugada syndrome was diagnosed as the cause of cardiac arrest. The ajmaline challenge test was performed in the members of the patient's family.
