Holiday heart syndrome represents very interesting clinical part of cardiology. Even though known for several decades, it’s etiopathogenesis remains not fully clear. Holiday heart syndrome is important in differential diagnosis of acute dysrhytmias, because of it’s clinical presentation as sudden onset of atrial fibrillation in association with excessive alcohol ingestion that resolves spontaneously and need not specific therapy. Prevalence in pediatric population is not known, however, it could be significant, because children often do not estimate the drunk alcolhol amount, enzyme alcohodehydrogense is „nontrained“ increasing the risk for intoxication in short time and creating the basis for HHS.
