Supraventricular Tachycardia in a Child with Varicella Myocarditis

Mahmut GOKDEMİR [1]


A 9 year-old boy was admitted to the hospital with stomachache, vomiting and rash. Tachypnea, tachycardia, hypotension, gallop rhythm, and typical skin eruption of varicella were noted on the physical examination. An electrocardiogram showed ST depression and supraventricular tachycardia. Echocardiography revealed slight enlargement of the left ventricle with normal ejection fraction, but no valve regurgitation or pericardial effusion. Varicella zoster virus serum immunoglobulin M antibody was positive. The arrhythmia resolved with digoxin. He was discharged home without sequela.
