Brugada‐like electrocardiographic changes induced by fever

By M Unlu, F Bengi, B Amasyali and S Kose

Abstract

As “time is myocardium” in the settings of acute myocardial infarction, it is important to make the diagnosis as quickly as possible, and a high clinical suspicion is needed to avoid missing the diagnosis, resulting in unwarranted interventions. The electrocardiogram is a crucial tool in the identification of acute chest pain, enabling a detailed analysis of patterns of ST‐segment elevation. We describe the case of a 22‐year‐old man who presented with fever, with dynamic electrocardiographic changes similar to the Brugada syndrome. These electrocardiographic anomalies disappeared when the temperature returned to normal
