Cardiac rhythm abnormalities, including ventricular arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and atrioventricular block, have been observed during the acute stage of dengue haemorrhagic fever. Atrioventricular or complete heart block can be fatal and may require a temporary pacemaker. We report a ten-year-old girl who presented with dengue haemorrhagic fever with sinoatrial block and atrioventricular dissociation that had a spontaneous resolution.
