Abstract

Supraventricular tachycardia due to accessory atrioventricular connections in infants is usually well‐tolerated. Rarely an infant can have Supraventricular tachycardia that is incessant and refractory to medical therapy. We describe a patient with Supraventricular tachycardia detected prenatally that caused severe cardiac dysfunction and hemodynamic instability after birth.
