Abstract Platelet donation by plateletpheresis is known to induce platelet and coagulation activation but there is no clear relationship between this acquired pre-thrombotic state and acute coronary syndrome in healthy donors. We report an acute myocardial infarction immediately following plateletpheresis in a 57-year-old donor with low atherosclerotic risk profile and no angiographic evidence of atherosclerotic disease strongly suggesting a causal relationship.
