We describe an infant girl with ictal bradycardia and asystole who died during an episode of seizure, despite anti-epileptic therapy and permanent cardiac pacemaker implantation. The mechanism of ictal bradycardia and the need to recognize it are therefore discussed. Timely cardiac intervention and adequate anticonvulsant therapy are essential for successful management.
