The ECG is abnormal in most patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD). Right ventricular parietal block, reduced QRS amplitude, epsilon wave, T wave inversion in V1-3 and ventricular tachycardia in the morphology of left bundle branch block are the characteristic changes that reflect the underlying genetic predetermined pathology and pathoelectrophysiology. Recognizing the characteristic ECG changes in ARVD will be of help in making a correct diagnosis of this rare disease.

Keywords: ECG, ARVD, desmosomal genes, ventricular tachyarrhythmia, SCD.
