Arrhythmias could unsettle a clinician ill-equipped to define it and cause haemodynamic derangement in the patient. A young adult Nigerian female with no known family history of heart disease or sudden death is reported. She presented with recurrent palpitations which over time became more frequent and interfered with her life. She had no history of obvious heart disease or anything to explain the occurrence. In the course of evaluation her ECG suggested arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. It is being reported as it is said to be rare in Africa, and rarer still among females
