We present the case of a 45-year-old man with clinical features of acute coronary syndrome with persistent ST segment elevation following an anaphylactic reaction to a wasp sting treated with adrenaline. A thrombolysis is performed with no effect on clinical signs, leading to an emergency cardiac catheterization which reveals a non-occlusive thrombosis of the right coronary artery. The pathophysiology and clinical implications of this association are discussed.
