Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) infection is a public health problem, which globally is considered a pandemic, causing a significant level of morbidity and mortality. It has been defined as a viral infection, the etiology of which is unknown, causing mostly respiratory tract infections. It is surely beyond doubt that vaccine development also plays an important role in ending such pandemics as well as hygiene rules and personal protective equipment. It is becoming gradually more apparent that cardiovascular complications associated with COVID-19, such as myocardial damage, arrhythmia, acute heart failure, and venous thromboembolism, occur more frequently than what was thought before. The precise pathophysiological mechanisms of myocardial damage remain unclear but are thought to be the main pathway, with microthrombi, cytokine storm, and plaque rupture due to hypoxic damage, coronary spasm, direct endothelial, or vascular injury. In this study, we wanted to present a 32-year-old coronary thrombus case with no medical history and no risk factors, which we think may develop due to the Sinovac inactivated COVID-19 vaccine or as a late complication of COVID-19 disease. While cardiac side effects associated with inactive COVID-19 vaccines are still limited in the literature, this issue can be clarified if there are more case reports.
