Syncope has never been described as the presenting symptom of divided left atrium (cor triatriatum sinistrum). We have now encountered this mode of presentation in an otherwise asymptomatic patient. An upright tilt test elicited syncope prior to surgical correction, but failed to induce any symptom, even subsequent to infusion of isoproterenol, after surgery.
