Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome is rare and is characterized by an accessory pathway that predisposes patients to tachyarrhythmias and sudden cardiac death. Early recognition is important and should be evaluated by a multidisciplinary team for adequate management and treatment. We present a pregnant woman that presented to the emergency department and discuss her diagnosis, treatment, and outcome.
