Brugada Syndrome Mimicry

It is important to exclude other conditions that may mimic the Brugada ECG pattern. These include structural disease that may be hereditary (arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy) or acquired (e.g. acute myocardial infarction or ischaemia of the right heart, pulmonary embolism, or cardiac compression) and similar ECG patterns in normal hearts (e.g. early repolarization syndrome, electrolyte imbalance, or hypothermia). They are separate clinical entities and have different pathophysiologies and prognoses.[1]
