Lown-Ganong-Levine syndrome

 [lown´gah-nong´ lĕ-vēn´]
an electrocardiographic abnormality consisting of a short PR interval and normal QRS complex associated with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia. Called also short PR syndrome.

Lown-Gan·ong-Le·vine syn·drome

(lown gan'ang lĕ-vīn'),
electrocardiographic syndrome of a short PR interval with normal duration of the QRS complex; it lacks the slurred delta wave of the Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, but resembles it in its frequent (controversial) association with paroxysmal tachycardia which qualifies it as a syndrome; otherwise short PR may occur in otherwise normal individuals.
