[Acute coronary event revealed by diving-related pulmonary edema.]

Abstract : We report the case of a 64-year-old healthy male diver who presented an unusual diving-related pulmonary edema induced by a painless myocardial infarction with normal coronary arteriography. We review the related literature and discuss the pathophysiologic mechanisms that would contribute to provoke this myocardial injury during diving.
