Abstract
Ventricular arrhythmia is a major cause of death in end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Corrected QT (QTc) interval prolongation, which is one of the predictors of ventricular arrhythmia, may be associated with ESRD. We report an 11-year-old boy who had ESRD with marked QTc interval prolongation and developed torsade de pointes with subsequent ventricular fibrillation during the induction of anesthesia. QTc interval was normalized completely after renal transplantation.
