Chest Pain in Two Athletic Male Adolescents Mimicking Myocardial InfarctionGupta, Sachin K.

The cardiac enzymes can be elevated in other etiologies of chest pain including myopericarditis, pulmonary embolism, acute rheumatic fever, and trauma. Therefore, patients presenting with chest pain and elevated cardiac enzymes should be carefully evaluated for other etiologies after ruling out acute coronary process. We report 2 male adolescents with myopericarditis who presented to the emergency department with chest pain and elevated cardiac enzymes.
