We present the case of a 38-year-old male with a history of acute chest pain associated with electrocardiographic ST-segment elevation and levels of myocardial damage markers. Few studies have evaluated chest pain and elevated troponin T during subacute thyroiditis. To the best of our knowledge, this is the reported case of myopericarditis associated with increased thyroid hormones in the bloodstream and accompanied by a significant increase in troponin T and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging findings of myopericarditis during the acute phase of subacute thyroiditis.
