We report a case with SVC ectopy initiating AF; the origin and breakout point of the sinus node was inside the SVC, and the SVC ectopy was conducted through the same path as the sinus node activation to depolarize the right atrium. Injury to the sinus node happened after successful isolation of SVC.
