Abstract

We describe a rare case of syncope caused by complete atrioventricular (AV) block on upright posture. The index case is a 72-year-old man who presented with recurrent syncopal episodes without a significant postural drop on presentation. During his admission we demonstrated reproducible AV block on standing for 15 s.
