Behcet's disease (BD) is clinically characterized by recurrent oral and genital ulcers and ocular symptoms. However, systemic manifestations involving the lungs, gastrointestinal tract, kidneys, and heart are well known. Acute myocardial infarction (MI) is a rare manifestation of Behcet's syndrome and usually results from coronary arteries vasculitis, leading to aneurysms. More uncommon is the occurrence of acute MI as the initial presenting symptom. Hereby, we report a case of a young male who presented with acute anterior wall MI sans any other conventional risk factors with a normal angiogram. And 3 years later, he was diagnosed with BD.
