Abstract

Up to recently, a few cases of myocarditis in the cardiac manifestations of scrub typhus have been reported. However, acute myocardial infarction (AMI) associated with scrub typhus has not been previously reported. We presented a case of AMI ensued on scrub typhus, which were successfully treated by percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
