Simultaneous ST-segment elevation in inferior and precordial leads following ingestion of a lethal dose of desipramine: a novel Brugada-like EKG pattern

Abstract

The typical Brugada electrocardiographic (EKG) pattern includes ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads (V1–V3) associated with right bundle branch block (rSR′) like morphology. Recently, a Brugada-like EKG pattern with ST-segment elevation in inferior leads called the “Brugada variant” has been reported. We report a case of simultaneous typical and variant Brugada EKG patterns with ST-segment elevation in the inferior as well as the precordial leads following ingestion of a lethal dose of desipramine.
