Pulmonary embolism (PE) and Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) are both life threatening conditions. The ECG as much as it has great utility, unfortunately lacks sensitivity and specificity, providing findings that might serve as red herrings to the unsuspecting physician by suggesting an alternative diagnosis. We report a case of 65 year old male patient, who presented with chest pain and breathlessness and the ECG showed ST-T segment changes suggestive of ACS, but eventually was found to have a sub-massive PE.
