Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The association between myocardial infarction and lower limb symptoms is rare and poorly recognised. To our knowledge, we present the third reported case in the English literature of a patient presenting with isolated lower limb pain as the initial symptom of a myocardial infarction. We describe the clinical case and discuss the potential pathophysiology behind this atypical presentation.
