With improvement in longevity and therapy of HIV; acquired heart diseases are expected to become more and more prevalent. The electric abnormalities in HIV/AIDS are not very rare. These electrical abnormalities in HIV/ AIDS patients may result from the structural heart diseases because of accelerated atherosclerosis, or cardiac dilation as a sequela of myocarditis, or infective endocarditis or pericardial afflictions in HIV. These electrical disorders can present with a history of palpitations, missed beats or even sudden cardiac death. Both tachy- and bradyarrhythmia may be seen in people living with HIV/AIDS.
