An 18 year old girl with pseudoxanthoma elasticum, a 7 year history of angina pectoris and evidence of an old anteroseptal myocardial infarction was found on coronary angiography to have three vessel coronary artery disease. A triple coronary artery-saphenous vein bypass graft was performed, and she has been asymptomatic for 1 year. Histologic examination of a segment of the right coronary artery revealed changes consistent with the vascular lesion of pseudoxanthoma elasticum.
