A 28-year-old man with acute myocardial infarction after carbon monoxide poisoning is reported. He had chest pain after the exposure to carbon monoxide. The electrocardiogram, serum enzymes, and technetium-99m pyrophosphate scintigrams showed anterior myocardial infarction. The coronary angiogram, which was performed one month after the onset, showed no visible atherosclerotic lesion. As to the cause of myocardial infarction, it is assumed that carbon monoxide reduced the oxygen supply to the myocardium and might induce coronary artery spasm with or without accompanying coronary thrombosis.
