CASE OF THE WEEK
An asymptomatic 10-year-old male visited his pediatrician for his regular attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) follow-up. A new systolic ejection murmur was heard. Chest x-ray showed an abnormal aortopulmonary window with enlargement of the left atrial shadow. ECG showed P-mitrale (M-shaped P-waves) in lead II and biphasic P-waves in lead V1, suggesting left atrial enlargement (Figure 1). These results prompted a referral to pediatric cardiology.
