The syndrome is characterized by a typical electrocardiographic pattern in the right precordial leads. This article will focus on the new electrocardiographic features recently agreed on by expert consensus helping to identify this infequent electrocardiographic pattern.

Keywords: Brugada syndrome, sudden death, ST-segment elevation, r' in lead V1.
