Angina Cranialis: An Unusual Presentation of Referred Ischemic Myocardial Pain

Pornchai Sathirapanya

Abstract


    Headache was a very unusual presentation of acute myocardial ischemia. A case of acute myocardial infarction presented initially with only excruciating headache was reported. The abnormal electrocardiography and high level of serum creatine kinase-cardiac type (CK-MB) and cardiac troponin T confirmed the diagnosis. The headache totally disappeared after the intensive medical treatment of ischemic heart disease. This rare presentation of acute myocardial infarction should be considered in acutely severe headache cases after the intracranial causes of headache have been completely excluded.
