A 19-year-old male presented to the emergency department (ED) following intermittent episodes of palpitations. Classical «DQ»epsilon waves«DQ» noted on his initial electrocardiogram prompted an evaluation for arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD). The diagnosis was confirmed with magnetic resonance imaging of the heart and stress test. A prompt recognition and management of this condition in the ED helped prevent significant mortality that may be associated with ARVD.
