Myocardial infarction is a rarely reported complication of amphetamine use. We report the case of a healthy 31-year-old man who presented to our emergency department with no clinical evidence of an acute coronary event after intravenous injection of amphetamines. However, he subsequently experienced a non-Q-wave anterior wall myocardial infarction associated with the use of amphetamines.
