We report a case of metastasis of lung carcinoma infiltrating the inferior left ventricular wall, the interventricular septum and the right ventricle. The metastatic invasion of the heart caused the appearance of pseudoischemic electrocardiographic changes, arrhythmias and eventually a conduction disturbances. The relevance of electrocardiographic changes as an indicator of cardiac metastasis in neoplastic patients is discussed.
