Atrial fibrillation-related synchronous thromboembolism of the mesenteric and coronary arteries is a rare event. This case report is about an 82-year-old male patient who presented to the emergency department with epigastric pain and who was diagnosed with ST-elevated myocardial infarction accompanied with acute mesenteric ischemia. To our knowledge, this is the first report of angiographic evidence of synchronous thrombus in both the arteries.
