Background: Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is a life threatening arrhythmia in which an identification of the correct cause and its timely treatment is vital for the patient. Case Report: We present a case report of a 66 year man with recurrent episodes of sustained and non-sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) confirmed through telemetry on a background of excessive ventricular ectopic activity. Surprisingly, he had different triggers for his ventricular tachycardia (VT) on each presentation to the hospital which settled with anti-arrhythmic drugs and treating the underlying cause. Conclusion: The reason for reporting this case is to highlight rare triggers of VT (a life threatening arrhythmia) and that it is important to keep on looking for other aetiologies especially if VT recurs after satisfactory treatment of an earlier cause as in this case.
