Abstract

A case report is described of a patient with cerebral palsy and Meckel's diverticulum presenting with congenital atrioventricular (AV) block. There is limited information of congenital heart block in adults, because most literature has been devoted to congenital heart block in childhood. This unique case is discussed with other patient groups' with congenital AV block. Long-term follow-up of congenital heart block is reviewed together with the concept of prophylactic pacemaker placement in symptom-free adults.
