Abstract

Symptomatic, circulatory collapse occurred in an unvaccinated child with repaired congenital heart and a backup pacemaker during an Influenza B viral infection with complete atrioventricular block and pacemaker non-capture. Ventricular arrhythmias occurred during her collapse. Atrioventricular conduction recovered within 24 hours. Influenza-associated cardiac inflammation can adversely affect patients with repaired CHD. Proactive immunisation is strongly recommended.
