Background Normal pacemaker response to magnet and programmer is almost universal and helps to interpret basal rhythm. Methods and results In this report, we report an undescribed atypical magnet response due to an internal cross-talk with atrial oversensing during a specific part of interrogation, simulating atrial fibrillation. ©2013, The Authors.
