Hypokalemia is a condition that may affect the contraction of the heart leading to decrease the blood supply through the coronary arteries, especially if the coronary slow phenomena exist. We report a case of 27 year old female with a acute coronary syndrome associated with a positive biomarkers of myocardium damage. The primary PCI was done and only the coronary slow flow was detected without any obstruction. A low potassium level was notified and outlined as the potential cause of non-ST elevation myocardial infarction. Patient was discharged in a good condition and dual antiplatelet therapy is recommended
