Cardiac involvement in cystic fibrosis (CF) is characterized by acute cardiac failure in the infant with myocardial fibrosis found on pathological examination. In the older child with chronic pulmonary disease, cor pulmonale tends to predominate the clinical picture. We report the case of an adolescent with CF presenting with ventricular arrhythmia. Cardiac scan, repeated echocardiograms and Holter monitoring were suggestive of an infiltrative process. We propose this case to be similar to those of CF in infants with cardiac involvement.
