Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare cause of acute coronary syndromes and can be potentially fatal. The authors describe a case of multi-vessel coronary artery dissection occurring in a young postpartum mother. The diagnosis was established by coronary artery angiography. However, the patient died following a cardiac arrest. The authors discuss the methods of investigation available and the different treatment options.
