Coronary artery disease (CAD) once thought a problem of old age, now seen among young adults too. There are several examples of young celebrities and sportspersons who succumb during their live performance due to Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI). Although there has been a dramatic decrease in the burden of CAD over the past few decades, this favorable trend has not been found among young adults, more so among younger women [1,2]. This trend highlights the importance of improving all levels of prevention among young individuals as their risk factor profiles and prognosis may differ from that of their older counterparts [3]. Furthermore, consequences of AMI in the young carries larger economic and social impact given the higher number of productive years of life lost. These points need further exploration and research.
