Abstract

Brugada syndrome is a rare genetic disease, of autosomal dominant inheritance with low penetrance, manifested by ST-segment elevation at right precordial V1, V2, and V3, and right branch block aspect. to the electrocardiogram. It exposes to a high risk of ventricular arrhythmia that can cause syncope and even sudden death, on a structurally healthy heart.
We report here the case of a young patient of 25 years who has a syndrome of Brugada induced by a neuroleptic. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Brugada syndrome induced by a neuroleptic Morocco. Therapeutic management is based on Amiodarone and beta-blockers. Regular monitoring of the ECG should, however, be performed on patients taking psychotropic drugs and also on associations.
