Electrocardiographic findings in Rett syndrome: An explanation for sudden death?

Academic Article


  • Girls with Rett syndrome had significantly longer corrected QT intervals (p <0.001) and more T-wave abnormalities (p <0.001) than were found in age-matched healthy girls. With advancing stages of the syndrome, the proportion of corrected QT interval prolongations and T-wave changes increased. The findings suggest a possible cardiac basis for sudden, unexpected death in Rett syndrome. (J PEDIATR 1994;125:80-2) © 1994, Mosby, Inc.. All rights reserved.
