Torsades de pointes in a patient of dilated cardiomyopathy occurring early on oral amiodarone therapy

Mohit D. Gupta, Girish MP, Partha Prateem Choudhury, Sanjay Tyagi.

Amiodarone induced proarrhythmic effects are rare. We report a case of amiodarone induced torsades de pointes in a young boy aged 16 years occurring early after initiation of oral amiodarone. This case underscores the need of careful electrocardiographic monitoring early during amiodarone therapy to avoid a potentially fatal arrhythmia.

Key words: Amiodarone, Torsades de pointes, QTc interval
