Migraine and Angina Pectoris by Coronary Artery Spasm


Dr. C. Even, CMME, Hôpital Saints Anne, 100 rue de la Santé, 75014 Paris, France.


A migrainous patient who experienced chest pain attributed to engine pectoris by coronary artery spasm during a migraine attack is reported. Previous reports have already mentioned the association of these two conditions and suggested that it might be the manifestation of a generalized vasospastic disorder. This new report offers an opportunity to review and discuss the available data on such an association.
