Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report the case of a 73-year-old patient with severe left ventricular hypertrophy presenting with acute ST-segment elevation mimicking acute myocardial infarction on ECG during a hypertensive crisis. Unexpectedly, emergency coronary angiography showed no evidence of coronary thrombosis or spasm. Electrocardiographic alterations gradually resolved after lowering blood pressure.
