Abstract

We continue the series of clinical cases in Pediatric Cardiology checking frequent reasons for consultation in the pediatric offices of Primary Care as well as exploratory signs, and presenting them in a brief and practical way. In this paper, we present the case of a 3 month-old infant who is taken because of shortness of breath and sweating with feeding. The way the physical exploration and the electrocardiographic findings guide the diagnosis of this patient is discussed.
