Junctional ectopic tachycardia, after surgery for CHD, is a serious arrhythmia that can cause increased morbidity and mortality. We report a case of junctional ectopic tachycardia, preceded by sepsis, in a 4-year-old girl, 31 months after open-heart surgery. She was successfully treated using low-dose landiolol hydrochloride.
