At 32 weeks, a fetus was found to be hydropic with congenitally complete heart block in an asymptomatic mother who was positive to anti-Ro antibodies. Maternal therapy with oral salbutamol was successful in prolonging gestation for a period of 3 weeks so that preterm delivery was delayed until the 35th week of gestation. Following treatment with inotropes and diuretics, a permanent transvenous pacemaker was implanted at 8 weeks of age. The child is now thriving at 20 months of age.
