ABSTRACT
Two patients with an early (second day) appearance of the postmyocardial infarction syndrome are described. Most author assume that the syndrome is a late complication of an acute myocardial infarction, but it need not be so. One should be alerted to the diagnosis of postmyocardial infarction syndrome in any patient with an acute myocardial infarction who suffers with chest pain (pleuropericardial in type), has fever and an exhibits audible pericardial friction rub for over 5 to 7 days.
