    The pathophysiological basis of Brugada syndrome (BrS) remains controversial. We attempted to isolate the origin of provoked ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation (VT/VF) associated with BrS through noncontact mapping of the right ventricle (RV). Programmed ventricular stimulation was performed in 3 patients with BrS. Rapid VT of a similar morphology that degenerated into VF was induced from the RV apex (n = 2) or RV outflow tract (RVOT, n = 1). These VTs arose from the RVOT wall or the RV free wall. The RV as the primary origin of VT may be a key target for BrS therapies.

    A 46-year-old woman who suffered from abdominal pain and vomiting was referred to our hospital′s emergency room. Intussusception was revealed by abdominal computed tomography and partial resection of the small intestine was performed. She was diagnosed with Peutz-Jeghers syndrome after a close inspection of the whole body. Cancer was suspected in the right breast and ileocecal region and an operation was performed that histopathologically confirmed the malignancy in the right breast. Peutz-Jeghers syndrome is frequently associated with malignancy and careful follow up is therefore considered important for such patients.
