The aim of this work was to estimate the effect of long term lithium treatment on electrocardiographic recording (ECG) in 30 patients with bipolar affective illness. In each patient, the ECG was analysed prior to and after 4 months and after 10 years of lithium treatment. The results obtained may suggest the decrease of unfavourable influence of lithium, on ECG in long term treatment. One of the factors which may contribute to the remission of previous changes in ECG is the maintaining of lower serum lithium concentration.
