Keywords: Acute myocardial infarction, MaxMan, Angiography


Acute myocardial infarction (MI) with a normal coronary angiogram is a well established abnormality, although it is usually related with stenosis in coronary arteries. We reported here a case of a 24-year-old man referring with acute inferior MI after MaxMan capsule consumption. The patient had not any related risk factors of coronary artery disease and a history of prior MI. The acute inferior infarction in this patient was detected in the electrocardiogram in the absence of any stenosis or obstruction in the angiogram. We do not recommend MaxMan intake as a usual drug before intercourse.
