Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) with ST-Segment Elevation Revealing Cardiac Amyloidosis: A Case Report and Literature Review

Abstract Cardiac Amyloidosis (CA) is an infiltrative cardiomyopathy characterized by the accumulation of fibrillar proteins in the myocardium. The deposition of these proteins disrupts the structure and function of the heart, leading to thickened walls, increased myocardial mass, diastolic dysfunction, and altered myocardial contraction, ultimately causing progressive heart failure. We report the case of a 65-year-old patient, S.L., admitted to our service with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) with a posterior extended ST-segment elevation, Killip class I, semi-recent. She is hypertensive and diabetic; she previously underwent surgery for chronic constrictive pericarditis, presumed to be of tuberculous origin, and was treated accordingly. The echocardiogram revealed a hypokinetic left ventricle (LV), predominantly affecting the inferior, inferoseptal, and apical walls. The left and right atria were not dilated, and both ventricles were of normal size. Coronary angiography showed no significant anomalies. Cardiac MRI supported a diagnosis of localized amyloidosis. Through this case, we explore the various clinical forms of CA, referencing existing literature.
