Abstract

Introduction:

Supraventricular re-entry tachycardia is a common neonatal and childhood illness often based on accessory pathways or dual atrioventricular-nodal physiology. However, there is only a limited description of atrial rhythm disorders associated with enterovirus infection. Publications of concurrent atrial tachyarrhythmia and hepatitis in infants are even rarer.

Case presentation:

We report on a 3-month-old female patient with recurrent supraventricular re-entry tachycardia and concurrent hepatic inflammation due to systemic enterovirus infection.

Conclusion:

Timely diagnosis of multisystem enterovirus infection helps to anticipate complications.
