Myocardial Infarction in a Premenopausal Woman on Leuprolide Therapy.

Perez IE, Menegus MA, Taub CC - Case Rep Med (2015)

Bottom Line: Premenopausal women with chest pain syndrome may have nonatherosclerotic coronary arteries with abnormal coronary flow.Estrogens have cardioprotective effect improving coronary vasodilatation.This case report discusses the consequences of leuprolide use by decreasing estrogen levels which led to acute myocardial infarction.

ABSTRACT
Premenopausal women with chest pain syndrome may have nonatherosclerotic coronary arteries with abnormal coronary flow. Estrogens have cardioprotective effect improving coronary vasodilatation. This case report discusses the consequences of leuprolide use by decreasing estrogen levels which led to acute myocardial infarction.

fig1: Initial ECG showing ST elevations in V2–V5, II, III, and AVF which are consistent with anterolateral and inferior STEMI.

Mentions: On physical examination, the patient was anxious and in distress secondary to chest pain. She was hemodynamically stable. The ECG revealed anterolateral and inferior ST segment elevations (Figure 1). She received Aspirin 325 mg, Clopidogrel 600 mg, and Heparin 5000 U in the ED and was sent for emergent cardiac catheterization.
