Abstract: 

Late complications requiring surgical intervention following pacemaker implantation are rare. Pacemaker erosion may be caused by primary infection or a noninfectious process such as mechanical pressure. In this report, a case of severe pacemaker erosion is presented in an 83 yearold female with a history of complete heart block who underwent dual chamber pacemaker implantation. One year after the implementation, the patient was referred due to noninfectious erosion of the pacemaker generator. The generator was re-implanted under the pectoralis muscle and the pacemaker erosion was treated without complication.
