The term 'pseudoatrioventricular block' describes an arrhythmia characterized by blocked P waves on the surface electrocardiogram, which reflects the occurrence of concealed junctional premature depolarizations. In this report, the authors describe a patient who had both pseudo-atrioventricular block and true atrioventricular block. The latter was considered an indication for permanent pacing.
