Acute tricuspid insufficiency is an uncommon cause of cardiogenic shock. Previous reported cases have involved patients with right ventricular infarction. We report a case of acute tricuspid insufficiency causing cardiogenic shock in a patient without evidence of right ventricular infarction. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was used to diagnose a ruptured chordae tendinae as the etiology of tricuspid insufficiency.
