Acute myocardial infarction with normal coronary arteries in a patient with Hodgkin's disease: a late complication of irradiation and chemotherapy (Journal article)

Letsas, K. P./ Korantzopoulos, P./ Evangelou, D./ Pappas, L. K./ Kardaras, F.

We describe the case of a 31-year-old man who experienced an acute myocardial infarction 16 years after undergoing radiation and vinca alkaloid therapy for Hodgkin's disease. Even though coronary artery disease is a well-established complication after mediastinal radiation therapy, this adult patient had normal coronary angiographic results, with no traditional risk factors for coronary artery disease, and no hematologic or other abnormality associated with hypercoagulability.
