Huseyin Ede, Shabir Ali Haider, Imad Awwad Ahmed, Haisam Hamdi Alsadi.


Acute myocarditis can manifest in a different clinical form ranging from subclinical disease to death. In these clinical presentations, acute myocarditis can easily be misdiagnosed as acute ST-elevation myocardial infarction. Therefore its differential diagnosis is very crucial in the management. Acute thyroiditis may also have similar pathobiological causes as acute myocarditis but the concomitant occurrence is very rare. Here, we presented a case of acute myocarditis mimicking ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction in an 18-year-old patient with concomitant acute thyroiditis and initial normal inflammatory markers.

Key words: acute myocardial infarction, myocarditis, thyroiditis, echocardiography
