Coronary thrombosis in young adults has been generally considered of rare occurrence. There is much statistical evidence to support this opinion. Levine and Brown1 in their classical monograph on coronary thrombosis reported 145 cases with an average age of 57.8 years. There were only three cases in this group under the age of 40, and none was younger than 35. The report of Connor and Holt2 included 287 cases, 20 being under 40 years of age and only two under 35. Many other articles on this subject give similar statistical data as to age distribution.
Recently, however, reports have appeared
