Myocardial Infarction With Proximal Occlusion of the Left Anterior Descending Coronary Artery in a 22-Year-Old Patient With Polycythaemia Vera

This case study discusses a 22-year-old patient with myocardial infarction, which was the initial manifestation of polycythemia vera. The awareness of myeloproliferative disorders as a possible underlying disease, especially in young patients presenting with myocardial infarction, is crucial for clinical management, as a missed diagnosis can worsen the patient's further prognosis.
