Abstract [en]

The ferritin level in serum was investigated in 9 patients with myocardial infarction, all with a history of chest pain of less than 4 hours before admission. A significant rise in serum ferritin level was found in 8 patients. The rise was generally smaller than that seen in acute infection and not significantly correlated to the size of infarction, as estimated from changes in serum levels of myoglobin, ASAT and LDH. The rise started after a mean of 30 hours, the peak being reached within a week (M 4.3 days). Serum ferritin then fell to 120--300% (M 190) of the initial level, where it remained. An initial rise in serum iron levels was unexpectedly seen within 12 hours in 7 patients.
