Due to the classic cardiac pain, patients presenting with Bornholm disease often have an ECG done to rule out life threatening diseases, such as myocardial infarction. Findings often include non-specific ECG findings may be seen; this includes T wave inversions that often resolve with resolution of the disease and MI can be ruled out due to the absence of ST changes.
