A 16-year-old boy with long QT syndrome type 3 (LQT3) was admitted for decompensated heart failure resulting from dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). His brother was also diagnosed with LQT3 and DCM. A comprehensive genetic analysis identified a novel . SCN5A missense mutation-p.Q371E-in these 2 affected living family members. It might be important to suspect the coexistence of DCM and LQT3 (which is rare according to previous articles) in cases with this novel . SCN5A missense mutation.
