Acute streptococcal myocarditis is an uncommon diagnosis in the developed world. Its presentation masquerading as acute myocardial infarction is still uncommon. We describe a case of a young male presenting with a recent diagnosis of streptococcal pharyngitis followed by a classical presentation of post streptococcal myocarditis. This is an unusual presentation of acute rheumatic fever (ARF) masquerading as acute myocardial infarction, with a discussion on its diagnosis and management.
