Introduction: The real risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) in asymptomatic Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome (AWPWS) is still not well known, and controversial literature is found about the best management strategy. Most worrisome is that SCD has been reported as the first event in asymptomatic or undiagnosed AWPWS infants. So adequate risk stratification to prevent the occurrence of life-threatening arrhythmias is warranted in these patients, but none of the available tests for this is a good option. In this article we review the literature about the subject and discuss about the adequate management of these patients.
Case report: We report 2 cases of AWPW infants that experienced SCD as the first clinical manifestation.
Conclussion: AWPWS in infants is a non-rare and challenging condition that implies a very low but real risk of SCD, which is very difficult to determine accurately with diagnostic methods currently available.
