Abstract

Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT) is a potentially lethal cardiac channelopathy characterized by episodes of ventricular tachycardia (VT) during exercise or in stressful situations. As the peripartum period creates a stressful environment, we describe our approach of this rare condition in a very common situation, child birth.
