Case 15

Show Summary Details


A 16-year-old boy was referred to the cardiology clinic because his ECG was abnormal. The ECG had been performed at a voluntary pre-participation sports screening on joining the county athletics team after winning the 100 m sprint at a trial. He was otherwise well with no childhood illnesses of note. He attended the clinic with his parents and younger sister (aged 11 years). Observations were; HR 60 bpm and BP 120/80 mmHg. Venous pressure was not raised and a soft systolic murmur was audible at the left sternal edge. His ECG is shown in Fig. 15.1. After this was seen, ECGs were performed on the rest of his family (Figs. 15.2–15.4).
