Abstract

Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis, a metabolic lipid disorder characterized by a defect in the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids, is a rare disease with 1 The His-Purkinje system macroreentrant ventricular tachycardia (VT) is an uncommon arrhythmia, and accounts for the underlying mechanism in approximately 6% of induced sustained monomorphic VT.2,3 We herein describe a patient with cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis, a history of sudden cardiac death and 2 morphologies of VT due to 2 different mechanisms.
