Abstract

A patient with no conventional cardiovascular risk factors presented with inferior ST-elevation myocardial infarction which was finally diagnosed as a case of essential thrombocytosis. This case demonstrated that thrombectomy alone was sufficient for the treatment of his coronary occlusion. Furthermore, this case report highlights the importance of evaluating rare causes of myocardial infarction other than atherosclerosis and that internists and cardiologists should be aware of essential thrombocytosis as a known cause of myocardial infarction, particularly in patients with no underlying cardiovascular risk factors.
