Keywords:Diagnostic errors, Medical informatics, Patient participation, Tachycardia, ventricular, Catheter ablation
Wide access to information and images on the internet and social networks has been considered an important source of research and understanding of the most varied clinical pathologies. As a result, the term “doctor Google” was coined to draw attention to the growing interest of the general population in this alternative source of research. The aim of this case report was to emphasize that physicians should be aware of the fact that complementary exams available on the internet can be a confounding factor and a source of information or images that can interfere with the diagnostic analysis and potentially with the clinical management of patients.
