Abstract

A Case of Syncope Induced by Dining-Related Esophageal Stimulation

Syncope can be caused by several diseases or diseased conditions. Repeated syncope occurring during dining is rare. Here we present a case of syncope caused by atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardias (AVNRTs) due to esophageal stimulation.

Keywords: Syncope; Atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia; Swallowing
