The Covid-19 in Young Adults with Non-Obstructive Coronary Artery Disease

Acute myocardial infarction can result from a systemic inflammatory response triggered by a cytokine storm in severe COVID-19 cases, affecting people of all ages and with no known risk factors. We present the case of a 36-year-old man with morbid obesity and well-controlled asthma that developed COVID-19-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome, necessitating mechanical ventilation and, eventually, Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO), who developed myocardial infarction on day 10 of admission and died on day 15 of admission due to COVID-19 infection, squealed. In the absence of obstructive lesions or plaque ruptures, a significant inflammatory response in young individuals with COVID-19-induced respiratory illness can lead to acute coronary syndrome.
