We report high precision assessment of fetal rhythm in utero in a case of isolated congenital complete heart block using fetal magnetocardiography. The recordings reveal a remarkably strong tendency for the atria and ventricles to synchronize, which is manifested by the continual presence of ventriculophasic sinus arrhythmia and frequent episodes of accrochage and isorhythmic AV dissociation.
