We report three patients with pre-excitation syndrome that resembled an acute coronary syndrome. A 65 years old woman, consulting in the emergency room for palpitations and retrosternal pain. EKG showed regular tachycardia and ST depression that reverted spontaneously after an episode of vomiting. A subsequent EKG demonstrated a pre-excitation syndrome and the accessory pathway was fulgurated. A 18 years old male presenting with tachycardia and chest pain elicited during exercise. An EKG showed a pre-excitation syndrome and ST segment elevation in V2 and V3. A coronary angiogram was normal. The accessory pathway successfully fulgurated. A 63 years old woman that presented tachycardia while exercising. She was subjected to an electrical cardioversion. An electrophysiological study showed an accessory pathway that was successfully fulgurated
