Abstract

We report regression of the abnormal Q waves of an inferior old myocardial infarction after an additional anterior acute myocardial infarction, and demonstrate the scintigraphic correlation and chronological course of this phenomenon. Scintigraphic findings in the present case here may contribute to an interpretation of regression of abnormal Q waves in myocardial infarction.
