Cardiac evaluation of proband’s sister, cousins and paternal aunt with clinical examination, 12-lead and 24-hour ambulatory ECG, SAECG, and 2-D echocardiography was negative.With both her father and uncle affected by ARVC/D, we were highly suspicious about a subclinical form of this disease that might have been the cause of young woman’s SCD. However, diagnosis was borderline: it was fulfilled only 1 major (family history of ARVC) and 1 minor (inverted T waves in leads V1-V2) criteria. 5 It was clear that we needed more data in order to “bind” an ARVC/D diagnosis to this unexplained SCD.
