Abstract

According to the first 2012 consensus report about interatrial block, the diagnosis of advanced interatrial block (A-IAB) consists of a P-wave duration ≥120 ms with biphasic “plus-minus” (±) polarity in the three leads of the inferior wall in the electrocardiogram. At the end of 2018, a new concept was introduced: the atypical A-IAB due to changes in the polarity or duration of the P-wave. The prevalence of these atypical patterns in different scenarios is currently unknown, but the patterns should be considered as risk factors of embolic stroke of undetermined source. When the A-IAB pattern is associated with clinical arrhythmic manifestations, it is known as the Bayés' Syndrome. We present a characteristic case of atypical A-IAB, and the rare left posterior fascicular block and transient right bundle branch block.
