The angiographic evidence of normal coronary arteries or moderate coronary artery disease is a relatively common finding in patients with a history of angina, with a higher prevalence in females. This condition is not a single pathological entity, but comprises several different presentations, such as cardiac syndrome X, vasospastic angina, myocardial bridges, as well as coronary alterations with more doubtful clinical implications, such as serial moderate coronary artery lesions or focal coronary dilations. These pathological conditions are different in pathophysiology, management, and prognosis, and for this reason their correct diagnostic definition, beyond the angiographic evidence of normal coronary arteries, appears mandatory. This review aims at providing an update in the conundrum of entities comprising angina with normal coronary arteries, and at explaining different diagnostic and therapeutic approaches.
