Abstract

Sir.—The otherwise excellent review of sudden cardiac death in young athletes by McCaffrey and colleagues1 is marred by misstatement of the inheritance of the long QT syndromes. The Jervell and Lange-Nielson syndrome2 is autosomal recessive and accompanied by congenital deafness. The Romano-Ward syndrome3,4 has an autosomal dominant inheritance and is accompanied by normal hearing. Many family studies have confirmed these patterns of inheritance.5
