For many years, physicians are occasionally puzzled with electrocardiographic (ECG) findings that shows multiple areas of injury / necrosis in the classic diagnostic localization of myocardial infarction. One of the reasons of such findings may be due to the fact that the location of the coronary occlusion and the site of infarction do not always have a constant relationship. The differential diagnosis can be narrowed down with the further use of an echocardiogram and cardiac catheterization. In this article, we reviewed a case study with paradoxical myocardial infarction (infarction at a distance) which is a rare entity and discussed about its findings.
