Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is the most common cause of poisoning-related deaths in the world. Cardiovascular complications of CO intoxication are myocardial damage, left ventricular dysfunction, pulmonary edema and arrhythmias. Carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) levels do not correlate with the clinical severity of CO intoxication. In this case report, we present a patient who was successfully treated with coronary bypass surgery after acute myocardial infarction secondary to carbon monoxide poisoning.
