Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the leading cause of death in athletes. Among which, cardiomyopathy is the most common in young asymptomatic sportsperson. The electrocardiogram (ECG) is used as a primary screening and diagnostic tool for detecting underlying conditions associated with SCD. However, providing medical clearance for an asymptomatic athlete without any positive personal or family history is especially challenging when the athlete demonstrates abnormal ECG, particularly repolarization patterns, highly suggestive of an inherited cardiomyopathy, or ion channelopathy. This paper presents two such cases of contrasting diagnostic conundrum which may help sports physicians and cardiologists working with athletes.
