Abstract

Electrocardiographic abnormalities are common with tumor invasion of the heart. Pronounced lateral ST segment elevation in the absence of myocardial infarction occurred in a patient with epidermoid carcinoma of the left lung. Tomography showed the presence of tumor invasion of the heart. Prolonged ST segment elevation without Q waves seems to be a sign for tumor invasion of the heart.
