Abstract

The combination of Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome and rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS) is rare in clinical practice. The management of this condition primarily depends on the clinical picture. We describe a 26-year-old male patient with no significant previous medical history and who came for a routine medical assessment before entrance to a police academy service. He was found to have rheumatic MS and WPW.

KEYWORDS:
