Mahaim fibres are cardiac accessory bundles which can cause dangerous tachyarrhythmias. Despite their first description being many y ears ago, their recognition and diagnosis still proves difficult. The electrocardiographic features of Mahaim pathways are subtle and shared with other accessory pathways; as such, an electrophysiology study must be used to diagnose this pathway. Even then, it is often a process of elimination which leads to the eventual diagnosis. Here, I will present the case of a young woman with a peculiar history who was ultimately diagnosed with a Mahaim fibre pathway. Using this case, I will describe the key electrophysiological features and the treatment of the Mahaim fibre pathway.
