MATAMALA-MORILLO, Miguel Ángel; RODRIGUEZ-GONZALEZ, Moisés  and  SEGADO-ARENAS, Antonio. Chest pain with ischemic electrocardiographic changes: Mitral valve prolapse in pediatrics. Case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2015, vol.113, n.1, pp.e17-e20. ISSN 0325-0075.

Chest pain is rare and usually benign in pediatrics. Cardiac etiology is even rarer. However, it is a symptom associated with ischemic heart disease and it imposes great social alarm, even in health care workers. Therefore, it is necessary to know the most common causes of this symptom in children, as well as serious diseases that can cause it, which require prompt medical attention. We report a case of chest pain associated with ischemic electrocardiographic changes in a patient with mitral valve prolapse and MASS phenotype (mitral valve prolapse, aortic root enlargement, and skeletal and skin alterations), we review the mitral valve prolapse and stress the importance of knowing it in the pediatric setting.

Keywords : Chest pain; Myocardial ischemia; Electrocardiogram; Mitral valve prolapse; Pediatrics; Marfan.
