We report a rare association of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in an elderly patient who had undiagnosed mid-muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD). The patient underwent primary percutaneous coronary angioplasty of the left anterior descending artery. It is uncommon to survive with VSD at this age, and the association of it with AMI is still rare. Whether the presence of congenital heart disease poses them for the increased risk of coronary artery disease is a matter of further investigation. Furthermore, the presence of VSD while they incur myocardial infarction affects the prognosis of the patient is not clear.
