JURADO O, Marisol et al. Acute myocardial infarction in a man without coronary atheromatosis and antiphospholipid syndrome: Report of one case. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2009, vol.137, n.11, pp. 1478-1481. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872009001100011.

Anticardiolipin, anti B2 Glycoprotein I antibodies, and lupus anticoagulant were all positive. Besides the usual management of the coronary thrombosis, the patient was treated with permanent oral anticoagulation. Three months later, a CT coronary angiogram showed complete reperfusion of the involved artery .
