A 24-year-old Chinese woman was referred for evaluation of palpitations. She had a background history of epilepsy. A 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) showed prolonged rate-corrected QT of 600 ms and a T-U complex. The ECG findings with her typical history suggest a diagnosis of congenital long QT syndrome. Diagnosis and treatment options are discussed.
