The patient is a 61-year-old diabetic male with history of renal transplant who presented to the emergency department with complaints of intermittent abdominal discomfort accompanied by multiple episodes of vomiting and diarrhoea. He had delayed seeking medical attention until his friends insisted that he come to the emergency department, since the abdominal discomfort was worsening. The patient’s ECG revealed an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction.
