Article information

We present the incidental finding of an electrocardiographic alteration, compatible with low atrial rhythm, during the physical examination for a sport aptitude certificate in a 9 years-old boy. The low atrial rhythm is an ectopic rhythm that can be found in pediatric patients and athletes. It's considered as a variation of normality, but it is important to have a correct diagnostic to differentiate it from potentially serious pathologies.
