The use of novel adhesive patch electrocardiographic monitoring for extended time periods has the potential to improve our detection and pathophysiologic understanding of ambient arrhythmias. Here we present a case of torsade de pointes in an HIV-infected individual highlighting the multiple mechanisms that may contribute to increased ventricular arrhythmia susceptibility and sudden cardiac death risk in such people.
