When the atrioventricular node is damaged, accessory pathways can perform primary atrioventricular conduction but may spontaneously degrade during childhood. After surgical atrial septal defect repair during infancy, an adolescent male presented with fatigue due to iatrogenic complete atrioventricular node block with a degrading antegrade accessory pathway resulting in symptomatic bradyarrhythmia.
