Abstract

A 16-year-old female patient was hospitalized due to narrow QRS tachycardia suggestive of fascicular ventricular tachycardia. Initially, the differential diagnosis with supraventricular tachycardia can be challenging. The tachyarrhythmia is well controlled with medication, but electrophysiological study and ablation may be necessary in patients who remain symptomatic.
