Recurrent acute myocardial
infarction with coronary artery aneurysm in a patient with Behçet's
disease: a case report
Behçet's disease is an
inflammatory disorder of unknown origin, with mucocutaneous, ocular, articular,
vascular, gastrointestinal and central nervous system manifestations. Although
cardiac involvement is not an uncommon manifestation of Behçet's
disease, coronary aneurysm has rarely been reported.
A 36-year-old Iranian man was
admitted to our emergency department for retrosternal pain of two and a half
hours duration. His detailed medical history revealed that he had no risk
factors for coronary artery disease, however, Behçet's disease had been
diagnosed about 10 years earlier. His electrocardiogram showed inferior
myocardial infarction. He underwent coronary angiography that showed multiple
giant aneurysms in his coronary arteries. Two months later, he experienced
another episode of unstable angina. This was followed by two episodes of
anterior myocardial infarction 2 and 5 months afterwards.
This case highlights the
importance of careful diagnostic work-up in the evaluation of myocardial
infarction in patients. In our patient, Behçet's disease proved to be
the cause of recurrent myocardial infarction.
