Subacute left ventricular free wall rupture is a rare complication in acute myocardial infarction. With the increasing use of thrombolytic agents and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitors, this complication has been increasing recently. We report a case of subacute cardiac rupture with frank pericardial effusion receiving thrombolytic and glycoprotein IIb/IIIa inhibitor therapies.
