    We herein present a case (72 years, male) with total absence of pulmonary veins (PVs) potentials at the beginning of the first procedure for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF), demonstrating dormant conduction between the left atrium and all PVs revealed by adenosine triphosphate provocation with relation to the incidence of AF. He was free from atrial arrhythmias during 1 year follow-up after complete PV isolation with the elimination of multiple transient dormant conductions by circular mapping catheter guide ablation.
