Abstract

© 2022 Wiley Periodicals LLC.ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) is a life-threatening clinical condition that requires immediate intervention, mostly caused by complete occlusion of epicardial vessels. Other diseases such as myocarditis, pericarditis, electrolyte disturbance, and early repolarization may mimic. We present a rare case of atrial lead-related atrial perforation which mimics inferior STEMI.
