Abstract

A 52-year-old man had longstanding hypertension and asymetric septal hypertrophy and normal major coronary arteries. His acute anterior wall ischemia gave rise to transient Q waves and septoapical dyskinesia, complicated by mural thrombus formation. Follow-up revealed a gradual and complete recovery of echocardiographic left ventricular function with total disappearance of mural thrombi and of electrocardiographic Q waves. Acute myocardial ischemia can cause prolonged electrical and mechanical stunning which can lead to mural thrombus formation.
