A case is reported of acute myocardial infarction (MI) in a previously stented left anterior descending coronary artery, which occurred shortly after uneventful dobutamine stress echocardiography. Myocardial infarction precipitated by dobutamine has been reported only rarely, as has exercise-related MI after stenting. This is the first case of dobutamine-induced MI in a recently stented artery.
