Blunt chest trauma is a rare cause of myocardial infarction. If the diagnosis is delayed, serious complications may occur. To prevent them, electrocardiography should be performed to all patients with chest pain after blunt chest trauma. In the event of myocardial infarction, coronary angiography should be performed as soon as possible and appropriate management interpreted according to clinical situation.
