Coronary embolism is an uncommon cause for myocardial infarction in clinical practice and there is no consensus on the treatment of this subject. Thrombolytic agents and percutaneous intervention are up to date options and yet there are only a few case reports regarding thrombolytic therapy in this special subgroup of patients suffering from myocardial infarction. We reported a 37-year-old woman patient with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction due to coronary embolism who was successfully treated using intravenous thrombolytic therapy with tissue plasminogen activator.
