Abstract

Oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy is a rare genetic disease manifesting after 45years old, affecting the levator muscles of eyelids and muscles of swallowing. We report the first case of a patient of 73years old suffering from an oculopharyngeal muscular dystrophy hospitalized for syncope, a complication of severe sinus dysfunction, requiring the implantation of a pacemaker.
