During chemotherapy with bleomycin and etoposide a 28-year-old male, suffering from germ-cell cancer, developed acute myocardial infarction. Under treatment with heparin and aspirin the patient revealed no Q-waves in ECG and recovery was without complications. Four weeks after onset of infarction, thallium-201 scintigraphy showed only a small irreversible, posteroseptal perfusion defect; coronary angiography was not performed. The chemotherapy regimen was continued and modified to etoposide as well as cisplatin and ifosfamide without recurrence of cardiac symptoms or ECG changes.
