Abstract

Abstract

We report a case of a young woman who presented with atypical angina. During an episode of chest pain she had a documented run of sustained polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT). In addition to medical therapy, she received an ICD to prevent future episodes of sudden cardiac death. Journal of Hospital Medicine 2009;4:E23–E25. © 2009 Society of Hospital Medicine.
