dc.description.abstractA 50-year-old male presented to the hospital with an approximate three-week history of nausea, fever, and back pain. Upon initial evaluation he had an electrocardiogram with ischemic changes and initial labs significant for a troponin of >25.0 ng/ml (<0.30 ng/ml), pro b-type natriuretic peptide (proBNP) of 9884 pg/ml (<125 pg/ml), and a lactic acid of 4.3 mmol/L (0.5-1.9 mmol/L). There was a concern for an acute coronary syndrome presenting as cardiogenic shock, but the patient was unable to tolerate left heart catheterization. He had a rapid clinical decline and despite all efforts, he passed away. The initial cause of death was thought to be due to an acute myocardial infarction, however, autopsy results were consistent with acute myocarditis. This case highlights the presentation of acute myocarditis as an acute coronary syndrome with complete heart block.en_US
