A 10-years-old boy presented with a history of effort intolerance and palpitations for 4 months. His electrocardiogram showed wide complex tachycardia suggestive of fascicular ventricular tachycardia (VT). The echocardiogram showed moderate-to-severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction without any structural lesion. The tachycardia was unresponsive to adenosine and direct current cardioversion. It responded to oral verapamil. The electrophysiology study confirmed the tachycardia as left posterior fascicular VT. The tachycardia was successfully ablated guided by Purkinje potential on three-dimensional mappings. He showed improvement in ventricular functions before discharge. He is doing well on short-term follow-up.
