Mutations in the human RYR2 gene have been associated with two inherited cardiac diseases: arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy type 2 (ARVD2; OMIM 600996) and stress-induced polymorphic ventricular tachycardia [ventricular tachycardia, stress-induced, polymorphic (VT-SIP); OMIM 604772] (5-10).

Wilde of the University of Amsterdam pointed out that the new 69-page report is the first major document to address some of the newer inherited arrhythmia syndromes, including catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT), short QT syndrome, early repolarization, and progressive cardiac conduction disease (PCCD).
Commonly prescribed drugs, such as antibiotics, psychotropic agents and histamine HI-receptor antagonists, can prolong cardiac repolarization and might trigger a polymorphic ventricular tachycardia called torsades de pointes (1).
