Atrial flutter AFL is a rare arrhythmia in the neonate and early infants. Here we report the case of a term female infant (A.K), with a birth weight of 3000 g, who was delivered by Cesarian section of a 26-year-old primiparous mother (I.K) in “Queen Geraldine” Maternity in Tirana. The APGAR scores were 9 and 10 at 1st and 5th minute, respectively. In prenatal history, no fetal arrhythmia was present. After waters breaks, a fetal arrhythmia was detected. Then the infant was delivered by an urgent C section. The infant was treated by medical treatment, which resulted unsuccessful.
