We report the first case of a child with known cardiac disease who presented in full cardiac arrest secondary to digoxin poisoning and was successfully resuscitated. A 12-week-old female presented 1-week status post surgical repair of a congenital heart anomaly in asystolic cardiac arrest. The patient was successfully resuscitated with standard Advanced Pediatric Life Support. A toxic digoxin level returned, Digoxin-specific antibody fragments (Digibind, Fab) were administered, and all signs and symptoms of toxicity resolved. The patient was discharged 6 days after presentation with full neurological recovery.
