We present a 40-year-old male who had myocardial infarction (MI), 48 hours following a road traffic accident. EKG showed anterior wall MI and complete heart block. Tc99m-Pyrophosphate scan and angiography confirmed the diagnosis. The possibility of traumatic MI should be considered in cases of chest trauma and the patient should be observed for 48 hours. Pyrophosphate scintigraphy can be useful in these patients.
