Thyrotoxicosis is the endocrine disorder which increases oxygen demand and at the same time can induce coronary vasospasm leading to acute myocardial infarction. Patients with thyrotoxicosis induced acute myocardial infarction are rare. The exact mechanism is still not known. The patients with painless thyroiditis shows thyrotoxic phase during early phase which is main culprit for changes in cardiovascular hemodynamic and acute myocardial infarction attack. Here, we present a 23 year old male patient without any risk factors of cardiovascular disease presenting with acute myocardial infarction induced by thyrotoxicosis due to painless thyroiditis.
