There were no clinical signs or echocardiographic findings to suggest involvement of the aortic root or aortic valve. His arrhythmias were treated successfully with a physiological pacemaker. The combination of sinoatrial and atrioventricular node disease suggests that the inflammatory process in Reiter's syndrome can produce widespread involvement of the conducting system
