Three Muskateers

Challenge: Click on the image to enlarge. This EKG has voltage criteria for LVH, non-specific inferior and lateral ST-T changes, and one peculiar finding on the intervals that identifies this as a 3-name syndrome...what is it?

Short PR interval, Wolff- Parkinson -White disease.. I had a hunch it was that, but i had to look it up to confirm.. nice ECG.. really subtle delta waves....

almost! the reason the delta waves are very subtle is that they don't exist...this is Lown-Ganong-Levine which is WPW without delta waves.

This is Lown-Ganong-Levine Syndrome, a pre-excitation syndrome similar to Wolff-Parksinson-White, diagnosed by a short PR interval and normal QRS complex. It may represent a perinodal accessory pathway or enhanced AV conduction.
