    Abstract

    Various instances of acute myocardial infarction that may cause concomittant St-segment elevation in inferior and anterior leads are presented. Among the situations that produce this phenomenon are: (1) multivessel coronary artery disease or isolated disease of a dominant left anterior descending artery causing combined inferior and anterior myocardial infarction; and (2) isolated disease of a right coronary artery causing combined infarction, or isolated right ventricular myocardial infarction. The mechanisms responsible for the electrocardiographic patterns in each instance are discussed.
