Resumen

RESTREPO, Andrés et al. Heart failure and atrial flutter as a manifestation of myotonic dystrophy type 1. Rev. Colomb. Cardiol. [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.5, pp.253-257. ISSN 0120-5633.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rccar.2015.05.006.

Myotonic dystrophy is a hereditary disease of the neuromuscular system with cardiac impairment, mainly showing rhythm disturbances and atrioventricular conduction defects, and rarely heart failure. We report the case of a 37 year-old patient who was admitted for acute heart failure and atrial flutter associated with long standing progressive muscle weakness. A diagnosis of myotonic dystrophy type 1 was made after complementary studies. A short review of the literature about this pathology and the cardiac manifestations is presented.
