Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Aortoarteritis presenting with isolated bilateral coronary artery ostial stenosis is a serious but rare condition. This letter emphasizes on a very atypical presentation of aortoarteritis and also distinct but unusual form of angiographic findings involving total occlusion of left main coronary artery from the ostium and tight ostial right coronary artery stenosis that had a fulminant disease course.
