Brugada syndrome is a rare syndrome characterized by arrhythmias and sudden death, particularly in younger individuals. A mutation in a gene encoding the human cardiac sodium channels is responsible for this syndrome. In the literature, there are several case reports of Brugada syndrome in association with the use of several anesthetic agents. Herein, we present our anesthetic practice and the use of tramadol in a 75-year-old female patient who underwent pulmonary lobectomy under general anesthesia and was diagnosed with Brugada syndrome.
