A 29-year-old man tested positive for COVID-19 and developed acute respiratory distress syndrome. While mechanically ventilated, his electrocardiogram showed inferior ST-segment elevations, with normal serial cardiac troponin I and transthoracic echocardiograms. He was treated conservatively, with complete clinical recovery and resolution of his electrocardiographic abnormalities. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
