Seventy cases of proved myocardial infarction in patients with 40 years and below were studied. Controls were studied simultaneously. The male to female ratio was 68:2 in the study group and all the controls were males. Age group ranged from 19 years to 40 years of which maximum incidence was noticed between 35-40 years. 12 percent of the study group were smokers, 40 percent were Obese, 11 percent had hypertension, 17 percent were diabetic mellitus 30 percent had family history of CAD. Mean Serum cholesterol, TGL, LDLC were elevated in the study group when compared to controls. There were 50% incidence of hypercholesterolemia , 35.7% incidence of elevated LDLC, 47.14% incidence of elevated TGL, 40% incidence of high risk HDLC in the study group, which all were significant when compared to controls. Obesity, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, smokers showed the pattern of dyslipoproteinemia in the study group Anterior wall MI was seen in 54%, Inferior wall 33%, Posterior wall, 2.85%, combined anterior and inferior wall 86% Incidence of ST elevation MI was 96%. Rythymic disturbances was noted in 40% and features of left ventricular failure were seen in 25.5%. Mortality was 4%. The incidence of left ventricular systolic dysfunction was 35.7%. The results were compared with earlier works in the field. Relevant literature were reviewed.
