In the absence of ischemic heart disease, severe acute reversible myocardial dysfunction is uncommon, with sepsis most often being implicated in the ICU. We report a 38-year-old woman who developed profound transient myocardial depression due to nonseptic systemic inflammatory response syndrome caused by a necrotic kidney. Hemodynamic parameters and echocardiographic findings improved dramatically following nephrectomy. Other causes of acute myocardial suppression, including electrolyte abnormalities, drugs, catecholamine excess, and endocrine disease were excluded.
