Abstract

Many times, physicians in emergency may get confronted with tachycardia. Some tachycardia are easily mistaken as supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) with aberrancy which is actually a ventricular tachycardia. So, here we report a case of such tachycardia which was thought to be a SVT but which, in fact, was a ventricular tachycardia instead.
