A premenopausal female patient presented with acute myocardial infarction of 3 different coronary vessels at different times within 1 year. These events were caused not by restenotic lesions after balloon angioplasty but by new lesions, which were successfully treated by primary angioplasty. Although she had a history of hypertension, type IIB hyperlipidemia, and diabetes, they had been well-controlled on medication. An elevated serum lipoprotein(a) level may have played a role in this rapid angiographic progression.
