Department of Pediatrics, Community Health Services, Fremont, OH, USA.Pediatric emergency care (Impact Factor: 1.05). 06/2012; 28(6):558-9. DOI: 10.1097/PEC.0b013e318258ad8d
Elevated cardiac troponin I can occur in patients with cardiac injury or sepsis. However, extreme elevations of serum cardiac troponin I in pediatric patients without myocardial injury are rare. We present a case of a 14-year-old girl involved in a motor vehicle accident with muscle injury, who was readmitted with sepsis and severely elevated serum cardiac troponin I level in the absence of myocardial injury.
