Although involvement of the heart and the occurrence of arrhythmias in systemic scleroderma is well documented, 1,2,8.4,5,6 only a few cases of complete heart block in generalised scleroderma have been reported in the literature. 8,7,8.9 We report two patients with generalised scleroderma who presented with symptoms secondary to complete heart block. One patient successfully underwent permanent pacemaker implantation with relief of his symptoms.
