Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Amiodarone is an antiarrhythmic benzoflurane drug with an imposing adverse effect profile. Amiodarone pulmonary toxicity is the major complication. It is well described in adults, whereas it is extremely rare in pediatric patients. This is a case of a child with supraventricular tachycardia post repair of transposition of the great vessels who developed amiodarone toxicity.
