BACKGROUND: CAD is a major health problem world wide and it’s incidence is increasing in young population which is estimated to be 12-16%,in compared to western population ,up to 5%.The current study was carried out to assess the incidence, risk factors and short term out comes of patients with young MI.METHODOLOGY: All patients aged 40 years or less admitted to ICCU of our hospital, diagnosed with MI were studied. Total 50 patients’ data were analysed statistically using computer software.RESULTS: Incidence of young MI is 13% during study period,more common in males(88%) than females(12%) with mean age of 35 years. In our study anterior wall MI(50%) is more common than inferior wall(34%), hyperhomocysteinemia(100%),smokimg (82%) and elevated lipo-protein(78%) are leading risk factors.CONCLUSION: Hyperhomocysteinemia and smoking are major risk factors for young MI,though short term out come is relatively uneventfull in our study.
