Long QT Syndrome,Look Closely and Do Not Trust the ECG-Computer

ST-elevation V2/V3, why? The patient never had chest pain, echocardiography inconspicious. History of several syncopal episodes. But, there is something wrong with the ECG. We observe a sinus rhythm ECG, at first glance, there are ST-elevations in leads V2-V4. No ST-depressions are visible. Upon closer examination, a prominent T-wave is noted, starting immediately after the QRS complex. The ECG computer erroneously indicates a significantly shortened QT and QTc interval.
