We describe the case of a 30-year-old primiparous woman who had multiple coronary stenoses of unknown cause, and discuss causes and risks in pregnancy in a patient with coronary stenoses and the management and outcome. At 13 years of age, the patient was diagnosed as having multiple coronary stenoses and percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty was performed. At the age of 30, coronary arteriography demonstrated multiple severe stenoses. Her previous physician had permitted her to become pregnant. At 32 weeks' gestation, due to uncontrollable uterine contractions, magnesium sulfate was administered. At 37 weeks' gestation, a cesarean section was performed because of breech presentation, and she delivered a healthy female infant. During cesarean section, oxytocin was given at a slower rate. There has been no recurrence of cardiac events during and after pregnancy. Multiple coronary stenoses during pregnancy need a multidisciplinary approach.
