ABSTRACT
Arterial calcification in the coronary arteries frequently indicates concomitant atherosclerotic plaque but can be present in the medial layers with no evidence of plaque. Calcification of the medial layer of arteries is seen most often in the peripheral arteries but also is widely recognized in the coronary arteries. We describe 2 patients who had marked medial and intimal calcification of the coronary arteries with little or no accompanying atherosclerosis.
