Anabolic-androgenic steroid abuse is prevalent and has been associated with numerous adverse effects. The case being presented is of an amateur weight trainer, who suffered an acute myocardial infarction; his only significant risk factor was his nonmedical use of an anabolic steroid, nandrolone decanoate. This case presentation discusses the hematologic effects of this class of drugs and the subsequent impact on ischemic heart disease.
