The occurrence of atheromatous embolization following cardiac catheterization and coronary artery bypass surgery is described. It was manifested initially by bluish discolored toes inciting suspicion of vasospasm and then by progressive renal failure. The diagnosis was confirmed by renal biopsy. The syndrome of multiple atheromatous or cholesterol emboli is probably more common than previously reported because of its masquerade of other illnesses and failure of consideration of diagnosis.
