A 61-yeard-old woman who had been complaints of chest pain, squeezing and dyspnea for three months admitted to our hospital. She had any history of known heart disease. Echocardiography revealed left ventricular regional wall motion abnormality. Multi-slice computed tomography(MSBT) was performed to detect coronary artery disease. MSBT showed coroner artery aneurysm on proximal segment of left anterior descending artery and significant stenosis on distal segment. Coronary angiography confirmed these findings.
