A case of acute cardiac rupture during dobutamine stress echocardiography testing that was performed on the sixth day after admission for an acute inferoposterior myocardial infarction is reported. Following successful surgical repair, the postoperative course was complicated by severe mitral regurgitation secondary to papillary muscle rupture.
