SCN5A gene variants are associated with both Brugada syndrome and conduction disturbances, sometimes expressing an overlapping phenotype. Functional consequences of SCN5A variants assessed by patch-clamp electrophysiology are particularly beneficial for correct pathogenic classification and are related to disease penetrance and severity. Here, we identify a novel SCN5A loss of function variant, p.1449Y>H, which presented with high penetrance and complete left bundle branch block, totally masking the typical findings on the electrocardiogram. We highlight the possibility of this overlap combination that makes impossible an electrocardiographic diagnosis and, through a functional analysis, associate the p.1449Y>H variant to SCN5A pathogenicity.
