An autopsy in a 28-year-old man did not explain the cause of sudden unexpected death. However, a history of episodes with tachycardia and dizziness and a reassessed previous electrocardiogram exhibiting ventricular pre-excitation was consistent with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. In this patient we believe that the occurrence of atrial fibrillation caused sudden cardiac death from ventricular fibrillation due to a short refractory period of an accessory atrioventricular pathway and a very rapid ventricular rate in atrial fibrillation.
