Brugada Phenocopies (BrP) are clinical entities characterized by electrocardiographic (ECG) patterns identical to those seen in congenital Brugada Syndrome (BrS), but which are induced by various clinical circumstances. Electrolyte imbalance and metabolic disorders can cause electrical alterations identical to those produced by congenital BrS ionic channel dysfunction. In this chapter, we review the most common electrolyte and metabolic abnormalities presenting as BrP.
