A case of somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) induced electrocardiographic artefact simulating supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is described in a three year old girl with Goldenhar syndrome, during anterior thoracoscopic discectomy with posterior spinal fusion for scoliosis. Adenosine was administered for this misinterpreted EKG with coincidental cessation of SVT like trace.
