Abstract

A case of a 16-year-old girl with left sided accessory pathway is presented. Following adenosine-induced termination of atrio-ventricular reentrant tachycardia the patient developed polymorphic ventricular tachycardia followed by preexcited atrial fibrillation with very rapid ventricular response and syncope. Arrhythmia was terminated by amiodarone infusion. Potential complications after adenosine injection are discussed.
