A letter is presented which discusses the case of a 19-year old healthy woman who presented with a history of palpitations. Runs of monomorphic, non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) with left bundle-branch block morphology, right-axis deviation, suggesting an idiopathic VT from a coronary cusp, were demonstrated in a 12-lead echocardiography (ECG). The patient was reportedly referred to electrophysiological evaluation and catheter ablation.
