Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a genetic disorder in which the electrical activity within the heart is abnormal. Specifically, this disorder can lead to irregular heartbeats in the hearts lower chambers (ventricles), which is an abnormality called ventricular arrhythmia. It increases the risk of abnormal heart rhythms and sudden cardiac death. The abnormal heart rhythms seen in those with Brugada syndrome often occur at rest and may be triggered by a fever. Brugada syndrome usually becomes apparent in adulthood, although it can develop any time throughout life. Signs and symptoms related to arrhythmias, including sudden death, can occur from early infancy to late adulthood. Sudden death typically occurs around age 40.
