A patient had an ECG on admission to the hospital that
demonstrated acute transmural inferior and anterolateral infarction. Changes of additional transmural anteroseptal infarction
were evident in ventricular extrasystoles but not in conducted
sinus beats. The patient died five days after admission, and
autopsy confirmed the presence of fresh anteroseptal infarction,
in addition to inferolateral and right ventricular infarction.
