MENDEZ, Jainer et al. Coronary thrombosis in patient with multiple sclerosis: a case report. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.3, pp.276-279. ISSN 0120-8748.

Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide, described classic risk factors to develop like hypertension and diabetes mellitus, but other entities such as multiple sclerosis (MS) may increase the risk of ischemic heart disease in many patients with incidence 24% higher than in people without MS, which may be due to dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system or to adverse effects of drugs used in this disease. We describe a case of acute myocardial infarction in a patient with MS and review the association of these two diseases.

Keywords : Acute Coronary Syndrome; Coronary Disease; Interferon; Multiple Sclerosis; Myocardial Infarction (MeSH).
