Sažetak

Cardiac arrhythmias during or after epileptic seizures are one of the possible pathomechanisms of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy. These arrhythmogenic epilepsies are most commonly associated with sinus tachycardia, but atrioventricular block and asystole can also be seen. Although a rare occurrence, these arrhythmias can lead to significant morbidity and mortality, but also can be potentially preventable with pacemaker implantation. Here we describe a patient with recurrent epileptic seizures, diagnosed with ictal third-degree atrioventricular block and asystole during seizure, which required a permanent cardiac pacemaker.
