Myocardial involvement and dysrhythmia are common findings with muscular dystrophy and are among the leading causes of death. The authors evaluated rhythm and conduction abnormalities in children with muscular dystrophy by electrocardiography, signal averaged electrocardiography, and Holter monitoring. Twenty-nine patients (mean age, 8 years) and 29 healthy control subjects were included in the study.
