Cytomegalovirus (CMV) is an opportunistic organism. We report a young, healthy, immunocompetent female with no apparent cardiovascular risk factors presenting with acute myocardial infarction. She had CMV viremia and went on to develop CMV-colitis and hepatitis. This report highlights that CMV can cause clinically significant multi-organ disease in immunocompetent-patients
