Abstract

An intriguing new clinical entity characterized by ST-segment elevation in the right precordial electrocardiographic leads and a high incidence of sudden death in individuals with structurally normal hearts was described by Pedro and Josep Brugada in 1992. The past decade has witnessed an exponential rise in the number of reported cases and a dramatic proliferation of papers serving to define the clinical, genetic, cellular, ionic, and molecular aspects of this disease. The purpose of this brief review is to chronicle the historical highlights that have brought us to our present understanding of Brugada syndrome.
