Accelerated idioventricular rhythm occurred in a normal 19 year old male. The His bundle electrogram verified the ventricular nature of the ectopic rhythm and excluded supraventricular rhythm with aberration. This arrhythmia usually occurs in patients with cardiac disease. However, accelerated idioventricular rhythm is benign and requires no active treatment.
