A three months old patient with congenital complete atrioventricular block and prolonged QT interval syndrome is presented. Before admission she had had two syncopal attacks. During hospitalization she had an episode of torsade de pointes which was followed by ventricular fibrillation. After a successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, a permanent epicardial ventricular pacemaker was implanted and she was discharged on propranolol therapy. She is now free of symptoms and doing well, 16 months after discharge.
