A Case of Pseudoinfarction Pattern in Diabetic Ketoacidosis
Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) is regularly associated with hyperkalemia that results in well-described changes on the electrocardiogram (EKG). However, ST-segment elevations on EKG mimicking acute myocardial infarction have rarely been described in the setting of DKA.

Published in the journal Cardiology Research, the authors present a case of a 43-year-old male with DKA who had pseudoinfarction pattern of ST-segment elevation on EKG that resolved with treatment of DKA. The authors further discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma around the condition.
