Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a rare inherited cardiac disease identified in the late 20th century, seen majorly in younger people in which males are mostly affected. Major cause includes autosomal dominant mutations in the SCN5A gene. ECG findings are helpful in disease identification. 13 types of BrS are presently based on gene mutations. Treatment includes Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator(ICD) and quinidine.
