Syncope Caused by a Head and Neck Cancer Controlled by a Permanent Pacemaker
KeywordsCarotid sinus syndrome, paraneoplastic, syncope
Syncope caused by carotid sinus syndrome due to head and neck cancer is rare. We report a case of recurrent syncope as a result of extreme bradycardia requiring pacemaker implantation. The patient began chemotherapy and radiation therapy to treat the underlying cause. When diagnosed early, a positive outcome is expected in these situations.
