Cardiac dysfunction and ECG abnormalities are rarely seen in the heatstroke patient. In our case, a 27 year old male patient who stayed under direct sunlight for a long time, there was an evident prevailing ST elevation,,in all derivations in his ECG,, with an especially clear inferior derivation. On the third day of his hospitalization, ST elevation decreased and the patient, whose general condition was satisfactory, was discharged from the hospital.
