Cardiology

Pentavalent antimonial drugs used for the treatment of leishmaniasis have been associated with sudden deaths, probably due to the development of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. Prolongation of the QT interval and ventricular tachyarrhymias have been described in patients on amiodarone therapy.

We report a case of recurrent torsades de pointes following treatment with pentavalent antimonial drugs and amiodarone.
