Paulo Sérgio Oliveira da Silva (19 October 1974 – 27 October 2004), better known as Serginho, was a Brazilian footballer.

Serginho started his career in the town of Coronel Fabriciano, Minas Gerais state, Brazil. He played for São Caetano as a defender, and was playing for his team in a Campeonato Brasileiro match against São Paulo on 27 October 2004 when he suffered a fatal cardiac arrest 60 minutes into the match. A later autopsy showed Serginho's heart to weigh 600 grams, twice the size of an average human heart.[citation needed]

With São Caetano, Serginho won the 2nd division of Campeonato Paulista in 2000, and the first division in 2004, and was runner-up in two Campeonatos Brasileiros and one Copa Libertadores.
