Chronic pseudo-angina left precordial chest pain caused by a thoracic meningioma

Abstract : Left precordial chest pain (LPCP) evokes above all angina. Eliminating a cardiac origin is then always the first priority. When cardiac causes are eliminated, non-cardiac causes are sought in order to avoid leaving patients with undiagnosed or undifferentiated chest pain. There is a myriad of non-cardiac causes ranging from heartburn, panic attacks, pleurisy, pulmonary embolism, pneumothorax, Tietze syndrome, bruises and fractures of the ribs, to spine meningioma, neuroma, herniated disk and impairment of the nerve roots. Although clinical presentation and characteristics of the pain are usually helpful in diagnosing the cause, conducting magnetic resonance imaging of the spine may be of a high utility in some situations. Here we report a case of chronic angina-like LPCP, caused by a thoracic meningioma.
