Background Sick sinus syndrome comprises a variety of conditions involving sinus node dysfunction and commonly affects elderly persons. When patients have contraindications or refuse to receive pacemaker therapy, the alternative treatment could be considered. Case Description A 36-year-old male of sick sinus syndrome successfully treated with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was reported. This patient refused permanent pacemaker implantation for personal reasons. Traditional Chinese Medicine, Sumailing Koufuye, was employed. After 1-day administration, the patients recovered significantly, both in manifestations and Holter Holter monitor.
