Cardiogenic shock is a state of systemic tissue hypoperfusion resulting from a primary cardiac dysfunction. When it occurs simultaneously to a non reperfusion coronary artery phenomenon, prognosis worsens and mortality chances increases.  This paper reports the case of a patient presenting cardiogenic shock after acute myocardial infarction - AMI concurrently with no-reflow phenomenon. It is a clinical case, cares and main aspects in treatment for simultaneous cardiogenic shock and no-reflow phenomenon are discussed, pointing out the relevance of early detection of these two clinical situations as to correct their deriving dysfunctions and ensure the best possible prognosis to the patient.
