Fatal myocardial infarction occurring in a neonate is reported. The patient presented with a clinical picture of cardiogenic shock simulating a hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Etiology of the myocardial infarction is uncertain for the coronary arteries were patent, anatomically and histologically normal, and there was no significant associated cardiac defect.
