Brugada syndrome type 3
Brugada syndrome type 3A condition (OMIM:611875) characterised by the association of Brugada syndrome (tachyarrhythmia with right bundle branch block and ST segment elevation) and short QT intervals, resulting in potentially fatal ventricular fibrillation.
Defects of CACNA1C on chromosome 12p13.3, which encodes the alpha-1C subunit of a voltage-dependent N-type calcium channel, cause Brugada syndrome type 3.
