Abstract

We present the case of a 58-year-old woman with suspected myocardial infarction. Coronarography did not reveal changes in coronary arteries. Laboratory tests revealed increases in troponin and inflammation parameters, and therefore MRI was performed. This showed subendocardial ischaemic necrosis with organ viability preservation in the heart muscle. As a result, myocardial infarction with non obstructive coronary arteries (MINOCA) was diagnosed.
