ABSTRACT
Several attacks of ventricular tachycardia (VT) were observed in a fifteen-year-old girl at late pregnancy. Left sided Bell's Palsy was the accompanying presentation. The symptom started with a viral-like illness. The VT could be effectively controlled with IV Lidocaine therapy. Labor was induced and the delivery was uneventful. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this syndrome was not previously described.
