Abstract

We continue the series in Paediatric Cardiology checking frequent reasons for consultation in the paediatric offices of Primary Care, presenting them in a brief and practical way and trying to show the electrocardiogram usefulness, diagnostic tool available at the Primary Care office. In this paper we present the case of an 8 years old boy with a systolic cardiac murmur detected in the well child consultation. The way clinical and electrocardiographic findings guide the diagnosis of this patient is discussed.
