Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an atypical cause of myocardial infarction, predominantly seen in women. Among various predisposing factors, genetic vasculopathies such as connective tissue diseases significantly contribute to SCAD. This report discusses a 36-year-old male diagnosed with vascular type Ehlers-Danlos syndrome following an anterior myocardial infarction and explores relevant literature.

Keywords: Acute coronary syndromes, connective tissue disease, premature myocardial infarction, spontaneous coronary artery dissection, vascular Ehler-Danlos syndrome
