    Abstract

    A young woman presented with an acute right pontine lesion and paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. The lesion was later proven by magnetic resonance imaging to be due to multiple sclerosis. To our knowledge, cardiac arrhythmias have not been previously described in this condition. Published support for this possible association is reviewed.
