ABSTRACT
The high incidence of paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia in patients with Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is well known. Until recently atrial flutter was considered a rare arrhythmia in patients with WPW. Yet, a frequent association of atrial-flutter-fibrillation with supraventricular atrial tachycardia in patients with WPW is presently considered a frequent occurrence. We present a rare case of WPW bigeminal pattern after intravenous administration of tensilon.
