Abstract

A young man suffered an acute inferior myocardial infarction following clinical use of cocaine as topical anesthesia. Coronary angiography showed occlusion of both the posterior descending and posterolateral arteries which was resistant to intracoronary administration of nitroglycerin and verapamil, a finding consistent with thrombotic occlusion. A subsequent angiogram 3 months later showed no residual lesions.
