Late positive flecainide challenge test for brugada syndrome

The flecainide challenge is an important investigation in the diagnosis of individuals with Brugada syndrome (BrS). Published protocols on the use of the flecainide test recommend a 10–30-minute waiting period if the test has a negative result.1,2 We report a case where type 1 electrocardiogram (ECG) changes occurred more than 90 minutes postinfusion after an initial apparently negative test.
