Abstract

We report an infant with ectopic atrial tachycardia, due to an aneurysm of the right atrial appendage, who developed congestive heart failure. Although catheter ablation was transiently successful, tachycardia recurred 2 days later. The aneurysm of the right atrial appendage was resected successfully by surgery, and thereafter she did well, reverting to normal sinus rhythm.
