Atrial flutter is a serious form of neonatal tachyarrhythmia. Maternal drug use of cocaine and/or opiate is associated with central and autonomic nervous signs in fetuses and newborn infants. The fetal cardiovascular effects of cocaine and opiate exposure are not well characterized. We present the case of isolated atrial flutter in a late preterm infant who has been perinatally exposed to cocaine and opiate.
