A Female Soccer Player with Unusual Fatigability and Ventricular Arrhythmia
This is a female soccer player competing at national and international level. She is living as a single, in apparently healthy condition and without known clustering of cardiac diseases in her family. She did not use any drugs. She often suffered from banal upper respiratory infections and had exercise-induced asthma for a period during adolescence. Beside her career as a soccer player, she was working as a sales representative. Usually she trained between 7 and 12 times a week, depending on being in low- or high-season of sport events.
