Brugada syndrome (BrS) is a genetically determined disorder and has an autosomal dominant pattern of transmission, with incomplete penetrance and variable expression. These alterations may predispose to the development of reentrant arrhythmias, and therefore cause ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation. Patients may be asymptomatic, but they are prone to develop ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation and sudden death. Many events that occur during general anesthesia, such as drugs, temperature changes, and heart rate variations, may precipitate lethal arrhythmias in these patients. Thus, an individual anesthetic plan, taking into consideration the drugs that may induce arrhythmias, must be arranged before the surgery. Furthermore, it is essential to provide an exhaustive monitoring during the entire perioperative period. We describe a case of general anesthesia in a patient with Brugada syndrome who was diagnosed with right colon neoplasia and programmed for scheduled right hemicolectomy by laparotomy.
