Description In this paper we present a case report of a young patient that was hospitalized in Jihlava hospital for gastroenteritis with fulminant progress resulting in septic shock. Stool cultivation was positive for Campylobacter jejuni. Bacterial infection caused perimyocarditis with transient ST elevation in unipolar leads V1-V3. Patient recovered completely after ampicilin and ciprofloxacin therapy including 6 months of follow up. To our best knowledge this is the first documented case of periomyocarditis associated with C. jejuni infection in the Czech Republic.
