Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) is an uncommon cause of myocardial ischemia and infarction. Hypertension has not been associated with SCAD. The authors report multivessel SCAD in an elderly woman with severe systolic hypertension. They postulate that hypertension of this degree may play a pathophysiologic role in the causation of SCAD.
