Acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) is a rare vascular disorder that carries a fatal prognosis. Common risk factors for superior mesenteric artery embolism include arrhythmia and myocardial infarction that was both associated in our patient. Early diagnosis and aggressive therapy can prevent bowel infarction and improve survival rates and thus outcomes since it carries a fatal prognosis. We report a case of AMI in a 79-year-old woman with a history of chronic atrial fibrillation and following recent myocardial infarction.
