Brugada syndrome is often electrocardiographically characterised by ST-segment elevation in the right precordial leads. The characteristic Brugada electrocardiogram pattern is often dynamic and concealed, and may be revealed during febrile states or under the challenge of drugs that have a sodium channel-blocking effect. In this report, we describe two cases of exposure of the Brugada electrocardiogram pattern during febrile states. When the patients' body temperature decreased and before the ST-elevation disappeared, ST-segment and T-wave alternans in the right precordial leads were observed, especially in lead V2.
