Electrocardiographic changes resembling myocardial ischemia or infarction can be caused by a variety of causes other than ischemia. One of them is acute myocarditis which further confounds clinical judgment by causing elevation in troponins as well. We report a case of myocarditis which underscores the importance of identifying the clinical presentation of acute myocarditis and the electrocardiographic changes that can be associated with it.
