We report a case of a 58-year-old man with Shoshin beriberi who demonstrated ST-segment elevation and myocardial damage without coronary artery stenosis. The patient subsequently recovered with thiamine treatment. We conclude that it is important to consider Shoshin beriberi as part of the differential diagnosis in patients with shock and ST-segment elevation.
