Cardiac manifestation of the huge pulmonary mass simulating ST-elevation myocardial infarction

Nancy Wassef, Sarah Dorrington, George Pulikal


A 77-year-old Caucasian female presented with central chest pain and an electrocardiogram showing anterior and inferior ST segment elevation. The patient had discrepancy of the blood pressure measurement and unequal radial pulses of the upper limbs.

The patient refused to have a bronchoscopy or any further investigations and was discharged to the community with palliative care support.
