Description

Coronary heart disease (CHD) is not limited to middle-aged and elderly individuals; when premature CHD develops in the younger population, it has distinct characteristics in terms of lipid profile, risk factors, and clinical presentation. The following describes a 21-year-old male who presented with stable angina, underwent a full cardiac workup, and was ultimately found to have multivessel CHD. In summary, the presence of mild dyslipidemia, high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, obesity, and a family history was sufficient to induce ischemic heart disease at such a young age. .
