ABSTRACT

We report here the clinical case of an Afro-Caribbean patient referred for complete atrioventricular block for whom a diagnosis of hereditary cardiac amyloidosis was eventually confirmed. Hereditary cardiac amyloidosis is an emerging threat in the Caribbean, and the main goal of this report is to raise the awareness of the disease among physicians.
