The article presents a medical case of a 70 year old woman who suffered hypertension and hypercholesterolaemia and anterior myocardial infarction. The patient receives thrombolytic treatment as response of her ST-segment elevation. She also receives a diagnostic coronary angiogram through her right radial artery, which cited a single coronary artery with atrioventricular circumflex artery. The abnormalities in the circumflex artery is described as the common risk factor of disease.

    Coronary ectasia is a little common angiographic finding. Its prevalence varies between 0.3-5.3% in different series, although a recent study reports until 6.7%. Coronary ectasia is suffered mainly by males, and may be produced by different causes; however in most of the patients it seems to be...
