To determine the incidence of cardiac arrhythmias of the school children, we have performed heart screening by the questionare and EKG and physical examination from September 1984 to October 1987 in Seoul. 1) The incidence of the cardiac arrhythmias was 1.27%. 2) There were 449 cases of heart diseases detected. Among these heart diseases there were congeni- tal heart diseases in 82 cases (0.31%), acquired heart diseases in 11 cases (0.04%) and arrhythmias in 342 cases (1.27%). 3) There were 211 cases in male (1.49%) and 131 cases in female (1.03%). There was no significant difference in the incidence of arrhythmias between their sexes and grades. 4) Of the cardiac arrhythmias, there were first degree AV block in 80 cases, VPB in 56 cases, PAC in 54 cases, complete RBBB in 48 cases, abnormal P axis in 37 cases, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome in 21 cases, ventricular tachycardia in 1 case, supraventricular tachycardia in 5 cases and sinus node dysfunction including sinus exit block in 3 cases.
