We report three patients with acute inferior myocardial infarction treated with aspirin (150 mg) and streptokinase (1.5 MU over 60 min), who developed atropine-resistant bradyarrhythmias during or immediately following streptokinase. The bradyarrhythmias responded to aminophylline, thus avoiding the need for temporary pacing.
