Abstract

Isolated complete AV block in children is not a homogenous entity: 'immunological' blocks are genuinely congenital and their prognosis remains grave, owing to the risk of cardiomyopathy, which is sometimes diagnosed late. The other types of block are diagnosed much later in childhood, and their mechanism is still unknown. They have a good prognosis as long as the indications for pacing the child are respected.
