Trichinosis presenting as acute myocardial infarction.

Abstract

A 20-year-old male patient is presented as a case of trichinous myocarditis with clinical symptoms and electrocardiographic evidence of an acute inferior myocardial infarction. He recovered rapidly and completely without any specific therapy. This seems to be a distinct rarity, having never been previously reported, but is of importance because of the almost uniformly excellent prognosis in this condition in contradistinction to that of a bona fide myocardial infarction occurring at this age.
