Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Bacterial meningitis is an uncommon life threatening disease with serious complications, including neurological disabilities such as hearing loss, visual impairment, seizures, and learning disabilities. The heart, kidneys, and adrenal glands might also be involved, particularly when the causative organism is Neisseria meningitidis. Cardiac arrhythmias have been rarely described. We report a child who developed bradycardia and prolonged QT while recovering from meningococcal bacteremia and meningitis. ©2013 The Author(s)/Acta Paediatrica ©2013 Foundation Acta Paediatrica.
