Abstract

Herein, we describe the cases of 4 patients who each experienced a myocardial infarction in association with nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis. We discuss the clinical presentation of this rare condition, distinguish between infective and nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis via a review of the medical literature, and present treatment options for myocardial infarction that is associated with nonbacterial thrombotic endocarditis.
