Abstract

This is a report of Brugada-like ST-segment abnormalities related to acute myocarditis associated with hematologic disorders. Electrocardiographic (ECG) pattern of ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads mimicking Brugada syndrome may relate to pathological abnormalities due to hematologic disorders that may have genetic, infective, or inflammatory origins. We describe two cases of myocardial involvement of hemotologic disorders, manifested with Brugada-like ECG findings.
