Spontaneous coronary artery dissection is a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome. A 46-year-old male patient presented with manifestations of acute coronary syndrome. He underwent coronary angiography because of angina unresponsive to medical therapy. A spontaneous right coronary artery dissection was detected during coronary angiography. Distal flow was assessed as TIMI-0-I. A coronary stent, 4.0x15 mm in size was implanted, after which the dissection disappeared and the distal flow became normal.
