Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is an uncommon heritable disease presenting with syncope or sudden cardiac death. Two genes involved in calcium homeostasis, the ryanodine receptor gene and the calsequestrin 2 (CASQ2) gene, have been implicated in this disease. We describe a young man presenting with exercise-induced syncope, clinically diagnosed as CPVT. Genetic analysis revealed two mutations, p.Y55C (C.164A>G) and p.P308L (c.923C>T), in the CASQ2 gene. Subsequent familial analysis indicates a compound heterozygous form of inheritance. (PACE 2008; 31:916-919). © 2008, The Authors. Journal compilation © 2008, Blackwell Publishing, Inc.
