MOLTEDO, José M. et al. An apparent life threatening secondary to long Qt syndrome. Medicina (B. Aires) [online]. 2013, vol.73, n.2, pp.153-154. ISSN 0025-7680.

We report the case of an infant with an episode of loss of consciousness, in whom ventricular fibrillation was diagnosed. He was successfully defibrillated and long QT syndrome was diagnosed as his baseline disease. This case constitutes a documented example of this entity as a cause of the sudden infant death syndrome.

Keywords : Infants; Sudden death; Prolonged QT.
