Brugada syndrome is an arrhythmic syndrome characterized by a pattern of right bundle branch block and an ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads on the electrocardiogram. This type of electrocardiographic change is predominantly documented in Asian and white persons and almost never present in persons of African ancestry. Despite the well-known risk of sudden death in patients with Brugada syndrome, controversy exists concerning the management of asymptomatic patients with Brugada-type electrocardiographic patterns. The present report describes the case of a patient with a Brugada-type electrocardiographic pattern induced by his febrile condition. A favorable outcome was achieved with a conservative approach.
