Delayed pericardial tamponade (PT) after penetrating heart trauma is now a rare condition as a result of advances in medical and surgical management. We report the case of a 32-year-old man with delayed PT after a stab wound from a knife. The initial evaluation was consistent with a traumatic apical myocardial infarction. After an uneventful initial course, the patient developed acute PT, which required emergency surgery. A thrombus was discovered over a laceration in the mid-segment of the left anterior descending artery and a simple suture was performed.
