Sinus bradycardia was present in 2 cases. Low voltage ECG in 5(10%).Low voltage with T wave changes observed in 4 cases.ST-T changes in 5 patients. Left ventricular hypertrophy presents in 4 cases.

Conclusion: ST-T changes in the form of flat or inverted T wave was the most common abnormality in electrocardiogram i.e.14%, Sinus bradycardia was present in 4% of cases.
