Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia in neonatal tuberous sclerosis complex and cardiac rhabdomyoma: report of one case


, : Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia in neonatal tuberous sclerosis complex and cardiac rhabdomyoma: report of one case. Acta Paediatrica Taiwanica 44(2): 112-115

Cardiac rhabdomyoma, the most common cardiac tumor of infant and child, has been known to be associated with tuberous sclerosis complex. However, tuberous sclerosis complex with fetal supraventricular tachycardia is rarely reported. Herein, we report a female neonate diagnosed as tuberous sclerosis complex with cardiac rhabdomyoma presenting as supraventricular tachycardia. The newborn infant was initially treated with vagal maneuver, adenosine push, and digoxin. Although the tachycardia converted into normal sinus rhythm, frequent recurrence of PSVT was noted. At 16 days of age, the recurrent supraventricular tachycardia was refractory to vagal maneuver and drug therapy. Direct-current synchronized cardioversion converted the arrhythmia to normal sinus rhythm and oral digoxin effectively controlled the condition of the patient without further PSVT attacks. Subsequent 9-month follow-up revealed no further attack of arrhythmia. Regression of cardiac rhabdomyoma has not been visualized on echocardiogram at 9 months old.
