Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A rare and instructive case of myocardial infarction in a 29-year-old woman was presented. In this case it was clinically suspected that myocardial infarction was due to metastatic choriocarcinoma of the heart. This was confirmed by autopsy. It was emphasized that metastatic choriocarcinoma of the heart could be a cause of myocardial infarction in young women.
