VALLEJO, Franco J et al. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome with complete auriculoventricular block. A strange association: Report of one case. Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2007, vol.14, n.6, pp.369-372. ISSN 0120-5633.

A 22 years old male patient is admitted for a syncope episode. An electrocardiogram shows a Wolff-Parkinson-White pattern and signs of auricular overload with left ventricular hypertrophy and complete auriculoventricular block. The transthoracic echocardiogram is compatible with non-obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. An electrophysiological study is carried out, finding pre-excitation through an accessory way and infra-His auriculoventricular block. An ablation is performed and a bicameral pacemaker is implanted.

Keywords : Wolff-Parkinson-White; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; infra-His auriculoventricular block; PRKGA2; James bundle.
