We report the case of an infant affected by frequent episodes of loss of consciousness with the clinical features of pallid breath-holding attacks. Prolonged asystole, up to 26 seconds, was demonstrated by Holter monitoring. The patient was treated with permanent pacemaker implantation, followed by complete symptom resolution during a 26-month follow-up.
