The outcome in the Brugada syndrome (BrS) is more benign in female than in male individuals. However, outcome could be adversely affected by sinus node dysfunction (SND). Long sinus pauses indicate an overlap between the phenotypes of BrS and SND. We present a 29-year-old woman with syncopal episodes at rest since adolescence.
