Vasospastic angina is considered rare but its prevalence is probably underestimated, especially in the case of atheromatous coronary lesions. Its diagnosis remains important because of its poor prognosis and its therapeutic features. We report a clinical case illustrating the issue of vasospastic angina’s diagnosis. Diagnostic ways such as coronary spasm challenge tests must be adapted to the evolution of the techniques and the use of coronary angiography nowadays, in particular the preferential use of the radial pathway especially in women with a smaller radial caliber compared to men.
