Amiodarone is an effective antiarrhythmic agent that is widely used for tachyarrhythmias, especially ventricular tachycardia and supraventricular tachycardia. It has some mild short-term (e.g., skin rashes, gastrointestinal symptoms, and corneal microdeposits) and long-term side effects (thyroid dysfunction, visual disturbances, pulmonary infiltrates, ataxia, and hepatitis). We present two infants who had hyperglycemia following amiodarone infusion during the early postoperative period.
