Abstract

We present the case of a 28-year-old woman who was admitted to our cardiology unit for acute coronary syndrome.
Her history was notable for cardiovascular disease familiarity, active smoking, and oral contraceptive use.
On further analysis, she was noted to have thrombophilic polymorphisms involving the plasminogen activator inhibitor PAI, angiotensin-converting enzyme ACE, and methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase MTHFR genes.
We discuss the implications that these cofactors may have had in the genesis of the disease.
