Biventricular metastatic heart tumors from gynecological malignancies presented as an acute coronary syndrome with ST segment elevation are an unusual finding. We present a case of stage-4 vulvar carcinoma that metastasized in both the left and right ventricle. The particularity of the case is the echocardiographic aspect in the emergency room: multiple, large, hyperechogenic masses disseminated in the myocardium, with pericardial extension, in context of acute coronary syndrome with ST segment elevation.
