ملخص

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCADad) is a rare condition that is often underdiagnosed given limitations of conventional cineangiography. In addition to the diagnostic challenge, the condition poses a major therapeutic dilemma given paucity of literature to guide management. We report the case of a 55-year-old woman, who presented with acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography at the time of the index hospitalization revealed type 2 SCADad. She was managed conservatively. Repeat coronary angiography three months later showed complete resolution of the previously noted dissection. Because of the high association between SCADad and fibromuscular dysplasia (FMDmd), a cross-sectional imaging was performed in this case, which ruled out underlying FMDmd. The patient has been followed longitudinally since her index event and has had no reported recurrences.
