Interest in congenital cardiac disease has stimulated many reports dealing with the anatomic, physiologic and clinical aspects of anomalies of the heart. Disturbances in cardiac rhythm and conduction in association with congenital cardiac disease comprise an important but less commonly recorded finding in congenital cardiac disease. Complete heart block is probably the most commonly recorded conduction disturbance observed in association with congenital cardiac disease. This ectopic rhythm is most often observed in association with congenital ventricular septal defects. Auricular fibrillation has been observed by Taussig1 to occur frequently in association with defects of the atrial septum. This anomaly may also
