Abstract

We report a case of unusual and unexplained cardiac death in an 18-years old female patient with congenital neurosensorial deafness. The fatal event was characterized by an initial syncopal episode, associated with a wide QRS tachycardia (around 110 bpm) but stable hemodynamic conditions. The patient, however, subsequently developed severe hypotension and progressive bradyarrhythmias until asystole and lack of cardiac response to resuscitation maneuvers and ventricular pacing.
