We report a case of heatstroke with rhabdomyolysis and myoglobinuria, which was complicated by cerebrovascular accident and myocardial infarction. Heatstroke can cause multiple serious systemic complications ranging from rhabdomyolysis to disseminated intravascular coagulation with multi-organ failure. However, it is also critical to consider its potential deleterious effects on the central nervous and cardiovascular systems. The complications of heatstroke can be explained by the combination of hypoperfusion and other mechanisms causing increased inflammatory response and thrombosis.
