Congenital afibrinogenemia is a rare autosomic recessive blood disorder. A 30-year-old lady, known to have congenital afibrinogenemia, presented with acute anterior myocardial infarction. We managed her with dual antiplatelet therapy and atorvastatin, but her chest pain did not subside and she was transferred to the catheterization laboratory. A proximal left anterior descending artery occlusion was crossed with a floppy wire. Angioplasty was performed successfully with a bare metal stent, and her symptoms resolved completely.
