Abstract

Early recognition of ECG signs of acute coronary syndrome is essential for prompt treatment. But presentation with atypical ECG changes constitute a diagnostic challenge. We here report a case of 23-year-old male who presented with chest pain having atypical ECG changes with hyper-acute T waves called de Winters T wave. This is a rare presentation of patient with acute Left Anterior Descending artery occlusion. Some authors propose that de Winters pattern should be considered as “STEMI Equivalent”.
