We report herein the findings of a 2-year-old boy in whom junctional tachycardia developed 2 days after he underwent a modified Fontan operation and thereafter was successfully treated by hypothermia without paralyzing and artificially ventilating the patient. Chlorpromazine was useful in achieving moderate hypothermia by surface cooling without producing any unfavorable effects associated with topical cooling.
