Abstract A 37 year-old woman underwent coronary angiography because of chest pain at rest. Selective coronary angiography demonstrated dissection and stenosis with a filling delay from the left main trunk to the left anterior descending coronary artery. The patient was successfully managed with urgent coronary artery bypass grafting. Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is relatively rare and threatens both elderly and young patients with acute coronary disturbances. Patients can be divided etiologically into three groups. The first was comprised of those in the postpartum period. The second was those with atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, and the third was those associated with coronary vasospasm. Dissections are frequently fatal and most of the known cases have been diagnosed at autopsy. Only a few cases have been documented by coronary angiography, and operative cases of spontaneous coronary artery dissection have rarely been reported.
