A case of a 22-year-old young pregnant woman with palpitations and near syncope is presented. Holter monitoring showed very frequent premature beats and runs of wide complex tachycardia, refractory to antiarrhythmic drugs. Electrophysiologic evaluation disclosed spontaneous automatism arising in an atriofascicular pathway. Differential diagnosis is discussed.
