We briefly review the disease processes for four young healthy soldiers who presented to our emergency department with serious cardiac pathological conditions. We present two unusual cases of myocardial infarction, a coronary artery aneurysm, and a case of smallpox vaccine-induced myocarditis/pericarditis. Our intent is to encourage others in military medicine to maintain a high index of suspicion for cardiac conditions even in a relatively young healthy population.
