Carbamazepine (CBZ) is widely used in clinical practice for various indications. Although its potential harmful effects on the hemopoetic system and liver are well known, the cardiac effects, though rare, have received less attention. This report presents a case of serious, but reversible sinus node dysfunction induced by CBZ in a young male with no structural heart disease. This case highlights the association of CBZ and sinus node dysfunction, which would have resulted in pacemaker implantation in this patient.
