Résumé
First-degree atrio-ventricular (AV) block is defined as a PR interval longer than 200 ms. If too long, it can become clinically relevant and may mimic a pacemaker syndrome. We report the case of a young woman with a long PR interval, probably congenital, with episodes of syncope and dizziness since childhood. Pseudo-pacemaker syndrome is rare and is a Class IIa recommendation for a pacemaker implantation. A dual-chamber pacemaker was implanted and short AV delay was programmed, with rapid clinical improvement.
