The effects of carotid sinus hypersensitivity on the cardio-vascular system are well known.1, 2 Most of the case records are concerned with patients who had a basic normal sinus rhythm whereas only a limited number of reports could be found wherein carotid sinus hypersensitivity was associated with cardiac arrhythmia. Weiss and Baker1 reported one case with auricular fibrillation (in this patient carotid sinus stimulation produced only slight slowing of the ventricular rate) and Hiatt and Adams3 published the record of one patient with auricular flutter. A survey of the literature failed to reveal the association of paroxysmal tachycardia and carotid
