Abstract:

We continue the series of clinical cases in Pediatric Cardiology checking frequent reasons for consultation in the pediatric offices of Primary Care as well as exploratory signs, and presenting them in a brief and practical way. In this paper we present the case of a 7 years old boy to whom a systolic murmur is noticed in the context of a viral respiratory infection. The way the physical exploration and the electrocardiographic findings guide the diagnosis of this patient is discussed.

Keywords: Systolic murmur. Incomplete right bundle branch block. Congenital heart disease. Ostium secundum atrial septal defect.
