Abstract

We report a case of coronary artery spasm in a woman without atherosclerotic risk factors. Coronary arteries were initially normal angiographically; however, repeat angiogram for severe chest pain revealed diffuse spasm of left circumflex system. Vasospasm did not respond to intracoronary pharmacotherapy and resulted in Q-wave myocardial infarction.
