Case Presentation: We describe a case of an acute myocardial infarction with an atypical electrocardiogram showing a de Winter T-wave pattern suggesting the 100% proximal left anterior descending artery occlusion seen on emergent cardiac catheterization.

Discussion: Timely recognition of acute myocardial ischemia is paramount for emergency providers. As highlighted in this case, It is important to be mindful of atypical electrocardiogram findings, such as de Winter T-waves, which suggest acute myocardial ischemia.
