It has been shown that various rhythm disorders occur in relation to an RSV infection, which include bradyarrhythmias, atrioventricular blocks of different degrees, multifocal atrial tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia, atrial flutter, ventricular fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia (3).
The most frequent dysautonomia found in our patients was blood pressure derangements either in the form of hypo or hypertension while literature review revealed that there can be any autonomic derangement like hypotension, hypertension, tachyarrythmias and bradyarrhythmias in patients of GBS20-23.
Others include ventricular septal defect, single atrium, tetralogy of Fallot, coarctation of aorta and anomalous pulmonary venous return.4 This condition is also associated with various conducting system abnormalities such as tachyarrhythmias (supraventricular tachycardias, atrial fibrillation/flutter) or bradyarrhythmias (atrioventricular and intraventricular conduction blocks).5,6 The most easily available modality to diagnose PLSVC is transthoracic echocardiography.
These include ventricular arrhythmias such as ventricular premature contractions, ventricular tachycardia, or even ventricular fibrillation, bradyarrhythmias, atrioventricular block, and supraventricular arrhythmias.

Therefor, TCAs resulting in AV block.[5] Electrocardiography changes include prolongation of the PR interval, QRS complex, QT interval which can be observed at therapeutic or overdose of TCAs;[6] uncommon bradyarrhythmias may occur due to AV block.[7] Psychiatric patients receiving antipsychotics usually associate with an increasing risk of sudden cardiac death and the risk may elevate during long-term use.[8] QTc-interval prolongation is often observed in psychiatric patients receiving TCAs or antipsychotics.[9]
Rapid administration of intravenous phenytoin can cause hypotension, bradyarrhythmias, and occasional asystole (1, 2).
Sudden cardiac death occurs in the majority of these patients secondary to pulseless electrical activity, bradyarrhythmias, and asystole and therefore the indications of implanted cardiac defibrillator in these patients remain unclear [27, 28].

Bradyarrhythmias, however, are mainly caused by drug side effects (such as beta blockers) when treating HTN [6-8].
