Abstract

Chest pain is a relatively uncommon reason for consultation during childhood and adolescence. Nevertheless, it may be alarming for the patient and family, due to the fact that it is usually misinterpreted as a potentially lethal cardiac disease. We present a review about this topic, focusing on diagnosis and initial management of these patients.
