Description Coronary artery disease combined sepsis associated myocardial ischemia resulting in diffuse ST elevation on electrocardiogram has rarely been reported. We reported a rare case of diffuse ST elevation precipitated by septic shock and preexisting severe atherosclerosis heart disease. In clinical scenario, it is imperative for physicians to be aware of non-ischemic ST elevation etiologies and avoid inappropriate activation of the percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) protocol, while not missing ST elevation myocardial infarction.
