Myocardial infarction in young female is rare condition, but carries significant morbidity and mortality. The recognition management for MI in young female is challenging due to its unspecific clinical presentation and lack of guidance in the current guidelines. We reported a 29-years old woman presenting with infarction type chest pain, showing ST- elevation in the inferior leads with total AV
block as complication. The risk factors in this patient were smoking, family history, cardiomyopathy, and preeclampsia history. The cause for myocardial infarction in this patient was atherosclerotic plaque rupture, but we did not manage to performed coronary intervention due to her low ventricular function and unavailability data for myocardial viability at the time of hospitalization.
