  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 44-year old female with aortitis syndrome com-plained of precordial pain on effort. Exercise electrocar-diograms revealed significant ST segment depression in leads Ⅱ, Ⅲ, aVF and V4-6. Coronary arteriograms demonstrated no stenosis. However, the right coronary arteriogram revealed collateral circulation arising from the sinus node artery to the bilateral vertebral arteries and the left internal carotid artery.

Collateral vessels in aortitis syndrome arising from the coronary artery to the lung have been reported sporadically.
