34-year-old male accountant comes to the emergency department with acute chest
pain. There is a previous history of occasional stabbing chest pain for 2
years. The current pain had come on 4 h earlier at 8 pm and has been persistent
since then. It is central in position, with some radiation to both sides of the
chest. It is not associated with shortness of breath or palpitations. The pain
is relieved by sitting up and leaning forward. Two paracetamol tablets taken
earlier at 9 pm did not make any difference to the pain. The previous chest
pain had been occasional, lasting a second or two at a time and with no
particular precipitating factors. It has usually been on the left side of the
chest although the position had varied. Two weeks previously he had an upper
respiratory tract infection which lasted 4 days. This consisted of a sore
throat, blocked nose, sneezing and a cough. His wife and two children were ill
at the same time with similar symptoms but have been well since then. He has a
history of migraine. In the family history his father had a myocardial
infarction at the age of 51 years and was found to have a marginally high
cholesterol level. His mother and two sisters, aged 36 and 38 years, are well.
After his father’s infarct he had his lipids measured; the cholesterol was
5.1mmol/L (desirable range !5.5mmol/L). He is a non-smoker who drinks 15 units
of alcohol per week.
