Chemotherapy induced myocardial infarction is a rare complication. We report a case of acute myocardial infarction developing in a patient with germ cell tumor of testis being treated with combination chemotherapy containing cisplatin. Twenty nine year old male without any associated cardiac illness developed acute myocardial infarction after third cycle of combination chemotherapy. Prompt thrombolysis helped in reducing the morbidity and earlier recovery of cardiac function.
