Abstract

We hereby report a short case of 71-year-old gentleman who developed ST segment elevation myocardial infarction shortly after starting the infusion of liposomal amphotericin B for disseminated histoplasmosis. We also discuss the novel pathogenesis of specific liposomal component of amphotericin B that contributed to the acute cardiopulmonary compromise in our patient leading to subsequent myocardial infarction.
