Bradycardia is rare in children and may be asymptomatic or cause fatigue or discomfort leading to syncope. It may be a warning sign of underlying pathology. A check-up for a cardiac or extra-cardiac organic cause should be performed. We report the case of an 8-year-old child admitted to the emergency room for bradycardia with a sino-atrial block that caused syncope. The assessment has objectified a brain tumor. We will discuss the different mechanisms that can explain the occurrence of bradycardia during a brain tumor, and the specificities of the management.
