Abstract

Fatty infiltration has only rarely been reported as a cause of a cardiac conduction defect. A case of chronic sinoatrial block and atrial fibrillation with severe fatty infiltration of the myocardium and the conduction system is reported. The literature on conduction defects due to fatty infiltration is reviewed.
