Acute compartment syndrome after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is a rare adverse event, and the diagnosis is challenging unless this condition is actively considered. We report a case from our institution of a patient with confounding presentation leading to a delayed diagnosis of compartment syndrome after CABG.
