A 57 year old white male was admitted to this hospital with the chief complaint of palpitation of 10 hours' duration.
The patient gave a history of attacks of palpitation for some 20 years lasting from a few minutes to a few hours. They were accompanied by weakness and dyspnea. The interval between the attacks varied from one to six months. The attacks were apparently initiated by over-eating and excitement. During the year prior to admission he had two or three episodes which lasted for 24 hours or longer. The attacks usually began and ended abruptly and spontaneously.
