Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) as an inherited connective tissue disorder can affect all tissues that contains type I collagen. Well-known cardiac complications of this disease such as aortic root dilatation, aortic regurgitation and mitral valve prolapse have been rarely reported in the literature. Coronary artery aneurysm is a rare cardiac complication in OI, as reported in a 19 year old female presenting with myocardial infarction and hypotension.
