Acute Inferior Myocardial Infarction Caused by Lightning Strike

Acute Inferior Myocardial Infarction Caused by Lightning Strike

Prehospital and Disaster Medicine 2018: 1-2

Lightning strike is an infrequent natural phenomenon with serious medical complications, like multiple organ damage, and it is associated with increased risk of mortality. Cardiovascular complications are among the most hazardous complications of lightning strike. Lightning strike can cause various serious consequences ranging from electrocardiographic changes to death. We reported a 21-year-old patient with no cardiovascular risk factors struck by lightning and presented by inferior ST elevated myocardial infarction (MI). The patient was followed up in the intensive care unit and MI complication did not develop during follow-up. The patient was lost due to multi-organ failure after 20 hours.Aydin F, Turgay Yildirim O, Dagtekin E, Huseyinoglu Aydin A, Aksit E. Acute inferior myocardial infarction caused by lightning strike.
