Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare and often fatal cause of acute myocardial ischemia occurring predominantly in young or middle-aged and otherwise healthy patients. We report a case of spontaneous dissection of the left main coronary artery in a young woman who was successfully treated with percutaneous coronary stent implantation.
