Abstract

A 40-year-old man with a case of Behçet's disease which lacked regular medical management was admitted under the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction. Coronary angiography revealed multiple aneurysms along the left anterior descending and left circumflex artery. The critical lesion distal to the aneurysm of the left anterior descending artery was considered to be the culprit lesion of acute myocardial infarction. The patient underwent successful coronary bypass surgery, and subsequent surgical and pathological findings confirmed coronary artery aneurysm rupture.
