Long-Qt Syndrome
Publisher: Wiley
Abstract: Background:Different types of long QT syndromes (LQTS) have distinct ECG manifestations according to the type and magnitude of ion channel dysfunction. While LQT1 carriers usually have broad-based T waves and LQT3 carriers have extended ST segments with relatively narrow peaked T waves; LQT2 carriers have low-amplitude T waves with high incidences of notches. Methods:We describe three members of a family with the same LQTS2 pathogenic variant, but different surface ECG findings. Conclusion:This case shows ECG differences may also occur between family members who have pathogenic variants associated with long QT syndrome.
