Abstract

In this illustrative case report, we describe a rare case of left posterior fascicular ventricular tachycardia (LPFVT) in a 2 month-old infant with emphasis on electrocardiographic caveats to diagnosis. The clinical course, treatment, and eventual resolution of the VT over a 2 year follow-up is comprehensively compared and contrasted to a modicum of individual such case reports of infants. The corpus of each such case of infantile LPVT is systematically reviewed and succinctly summarized in a tabular compendium. The collective knowledge compiled here should allow for a refined approach to diagnosis and management of this unusual arrhythmia.
