The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can cause diverse cardiovascular complications. In HIV patients on antiretroviral therapy, the prevalence of myocardial infarction has steadily increased over the years. Young patients who are naïve to antiretroviral therapy and who experience coronary events are not well represented in the medical literature. We describe the case of a 22-year-old man, infected with HIV for 4 years and never treated with antiretroviral therapy, who emergently presented with a non-ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction. Coronary angiograms revealed thrombosis and multiple coronary artery aneurysms; however, no areas of atherosclerotic stenosis were apparent. He was successfully treated with coronary stenting, antiplatelet therapy, and anticoagulation. Nine months after the initial presentation, he exhibited excellent exercise capacity, and no ischemia was evident. We discuss the various therapeutic approaches in this case.
