A 68-year-old man suffered an acute myocardial infarction while receiving an intravenous infusion of paclitaxel. Coronary angiograms revealed only mild plaquing of the infarct-related artery without significant angiographic obstructions. The authors postulate that paclitaxel may have caused coronary vasospasm and myocardial infarction.
