Although amiodarone is generally regarded as safe with a low incidence of associated arrhythmias, torsade de pointes (TdP) has been observed usually in the presence of predisposing factors. We report a case of amiodarone-induced TdP after long-term administration of a low dose of oral amiodarone in the absence of predisposing factors.
