Pectus excavatum (PE) is the most common congenital deformity of the anterior chest wall with male predominance. Surgical correction with modified Ravitch or Nuss technique is sometimes performed, but recurrent PE is not uncommon. Indications of the operation for PE are various, of those, symptomatic tachyarrhythmia is one of the important reasons. As a consequence of mechanical compression, PE leads to structural or hemodynamic consequences which may be proarrhythmic. We report a case of young man with recurrent PE after the first surgical correction at the age of 3. He presented with palpitation and his electrocardiogram (ECG) showed ST-segment elevation on the right precordial leads, which could be mistaken for a Brugada syndrome (BrS)....
