Although rarely reported, acute instent thrombosis can be life threatening, especially in cases where there are no ST segment changes. For this reason, careful history taking, follow-up, and prompt coronary angiography may be lifesaving. Herein, a case of acute stent thrombosis with no ST segment changes on electrocardiogram that was resolved with intracoronary tirofiban is presented.
