Theories to explain the condition have suggested possible accessory fibres that bypass all, or part of, the AV node [ 1 ]. In some cases there may be a congenitally malfunctioning AV node [ 2 ]. Whatever the pathophysiology, conduction is passed from the atria to the bundle of His without the delay usually incurred at the AV node.

Those with LGL syndrome have episodes of abnormal heart racing with a short PR interval and normal QRS complexes seen on their electrocardiogram when in a normal sinus rhythm. LGL syndrome was originally thought to be due to an abnormal electrical connection between the atria and the ventricles , but is now thought to be due to accelerated conduction through the atrioventricular node in the majority of cases. LGL syndrome was originally thought to involve a rapidly conducting accessory pathway bundle of James that connects the atria directly to the bundle of His , bypassing the slowly conducting atrioventricular node.

Whilst in a minority of cases some form of intranodal or paranodal fibers that bypass all or part of the atrioventricular node can be found with subsequent conduction down the normal His-Purkinje system , in most cases the short PR interval is caused by accelerated conduction through the atrioventricular node.

LGL syndrome is diagnosed in a person who has experienced episodes of abnormal heart racing arrhythmias who has a PR interval less than or equal to 0. Lown—Ganong—Levine syndrome is a clinical diagnosis that came about before the advent of electrophysiology studies. Individuals with LGL syndrome do not carry an increased risk of sudden death. The only morbidity associated with the syndrome is the occurrence of paroxysmal episodes of tachycardia which may be of several types, including sinus tachycardia , atrioventricular nodal re-entrant tachycardia , atrial fibrillation , or atrial flutter.

Lown-Ganong-Levine Syndrome

Thus, when the sinus node fires, the electrical activation does not need to travel through the AV node like in a normal person which usually delays the impulse from getting to the ventricles. Instead, the action potential can travel down the accessory pathway and activate the ventricles rapidly. This short duration between the sinus node firing and the ventricles being depolarized results in a short PR interval on the ECG. The main distinguishing feature between LGL and WPW syndromes is that the accessory pathway in LGL syndrome connects distally to the normal conduction pathway bundle of His , and in WPW the accessory pathway connects to the ventricular myocardium. This is because ventricular activation occurs normally in LGL syndrome instead of occurring from myocyte to myocyte as seen in WPW. Treatment is similar to WPW and procainamide is frequently utilized.
