Many newborns may present which ventricular repolarization abnormalities due to several acquired or congenital conditions which may cause prolonged QT interval. As the association between long QT interval and sudden infant death syndrome has been clearly established, the finding of ventricular repolarization abnormalities in the newborn is of special clinical relevance, with specific diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic implications.
