Abstract

We present a patient with ventricular fibrillation (VF) associated with J-wave manifestation following pericarditis after catheter ablation of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF). The premature ventricular contraction induced VF with J-waves in the inferior leads 2 days after the procedure. The patient's juvenile onset of AF and a family history of sudden cardiac death strongly suggested an underlying hereditable channelopathy. The late gadolinium enhancement in the posterior wall, viewed by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, matched the leads of the J-waves. VF might develop in juvenile onset of AF especially in individuals with a family history of sudden cardiac death.
