Abstract

Syncope due to atrioventricular block may occur as a result of a cardiac vasodepressor reflex. This article reports a case of syncope in a 58-year-old man with high-grade atrioventricular block documented by ambulatory ECG monitoring at home. What makes this case unusual is that the patient's principal diagnosis was noncardiac.
