Myocardial abscess, a rare and life-threatening disease, occurs as a complication of infective endocarditis, acute myocardial infarction, or other infections in the setting of debilitating condition. We report a case of myocardial abscess mimicking acute myocardial infarction (AMI), not a following consequence of AMI. We can diagnose the disease with the aid of transthoracic echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography.
