The prothrombotic effect of malignant diseases on organism is commonly known. We review the documentation of the Medical Department in Liptovsky Mikulas filed in years 1996-2002 (15,512 patients). 120 patients suffered from significantly coinciding acute myocardial infarction and malignant diseases (p = 0.05). In 17 of them the correlation was possible; in 38 it was probable. Most common were the tumours of digestive organs, uropoetic system and oncohematological diseases. The acute myocardial infarction usually preceded the diagnosis of malignant diseases. Under certain conditions, e.g. under that of paraneoplastic syndrome, some acute myocardial infarctions can serve as a hint that it is necessary to assume and solve also possible presence of occult malignancies (Fig. 1, Re of 46).
