This report describes a case of atrioventricular crosstalk during a stimulation threshold test. This phenomenon was likely due to the accidental connection between the atrial and ventricular stylets. Electrocardiologists should recognize atrioventricular crosstalk during a stimulation threshold test to avoid repositioning the atrial lead unnecessarily or inducing ventricular arrhythmia.
