    Abstract

    The rare isolated dissecting aneurysm of a coronary artery (DACA), known to be causally related to trauma and Marfan's syndrome, has also been linked with pregnancy and the postpartum state [1]. Hormonal effects on the ground substance or connective tissue of the coronary vessels have been invoked to explain this phenomenon [2]. The well-known relationship of dissecting aneurysms of the aorta with cystic medial necrosis prompted a search for the association of this degenerative change with dissecting aneurysms of the coronary artery. Various authors have confirmed this association [3,4].
