    Abstract

    Dissecting aneurysm of a coronary artery is an unusual occurrence, with a review of the literature revealing only 32 cases. Because this process results in sudden and unexpected death, frequently in young individuals, such cases often fall within the jurisdiction of the medical examiner. This paper reports two cases of coronary artery dissection seen at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of West Virginia, during a recent six-week period. A review of the literature concerning this unusual entity is also presented.
