In a recent study of two cases that revealed a combination of features suggesting the diagnosis of Reiter's disease, transient auriculoventricular conduction defects were observed in the electrocardiographic tracings. These appear to be the first instances in which morbid effects upon the myocardium have been demonstrated during the course of this disease. Although the nature and pathogenesis of the cardiac involvement are yet to be clarified, recognition of such myocardial manifestations should dispel confusion in differentiating this obscure syndrome from other diseases.
Since the publication of the first report of Reiter's disease in 1916,1 communications relating to this syndrome have
