Permanent junctional reciprocating tachycardia (PJRT) is an incessant or almost incessant supraventricular tachycardia with a long RP interval, usually occurring in children and young adults.The differential diagnosis of PJRT includes an atrial tachycardia and atypical atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT). The accessory pathways in PJRT are typically located in the posteroseptal region.We report a case of successful radiofrequency catheter ablation in a 28-year-old male patient with PJRT due to a left posterolateral accessory pathway.
