Abstract

A-64-year-old man was admitted to the emergency department because of dyspnea. Twelve-lead ECG revealed alternating QRS complexes. In consequence of diagnostic tests, i.e., chest tomography showed eventration of the left diaphragm. In this case, we present an unusual case of electrical alternans due to diaphragmatic eventration.
