Pacing Clin Electrophysiol. 2003 Nov;26(11):2181-4. doi: 10.1046/j.1460-9592.2003.00341.x.


Pseudoinfarction pattern is a rare ECG manifestation of marked hyperkalemia. Case reports characteristically describe the occurrence of anteroseptal pseudoinfarction pattern and four cases of anteroseptal together with inferior wall pseudoinfarction pattern associated with hyperkalemia. We report a case with isolated inferior wall pseudoinfarction pattern due to hyperkalemia.
