Abstract

Covid19 is still one of the major public health problems of all countries nowadays. The most common cardiac manifestations reported till now are acute coronary syndrome, myocarditis, and arrhythmia. The prevalence
of COVID-19 induced arrhythmias is different in recent reports and varies from benign sinus tachycardia to
more ominous cases of severe bradycardia or even malignant ventricular arrhythmias. Here in, we describe
a case of complete heart block in severe covid-19 pneumonia and review all recent relevant case reports
published to date in order to understand the probable mechanisms and contributing factors of this rare
complication of the disease.
