Abstract

A 54-year-old female patient with history of hypertension and smoking has been described. After the infection of the upper respiratory tract, she manifested acute coronary syndrome. Coronary angiography revealed spontaneous artery dissection in the middle part of the left anterior descending artery with a 40–50% blockage. After the risk stratification, strategies for conservative treatment were adopted.
