  • The fibrillin defect central to Marfan syndrome is believed to affect myocardial conduction and predispose affected patients to various arrhythmias, including ventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, and atrioventricular nodal reentry tachycardia. Here we describe an adult Marfan patient with atrial ectopic tachycardia. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of atrial ectopic tachycardia in the setting of Marfan syndrome.
