ABSTRACT
Loeys-Dietz Syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder concerning the connective tissue. SCAD is the underlying cause of 1.7% to 4% of ACS and accounts for 0.5% of sudden cardiac deaths. Furthermore, in young women <60 years of age, SCAD accounts for 22% to 35% of ACS presentations. A 48-year-old female with Loeys-Dietz syndrome with no aortic enlargement was diagnosed with SCAD upon the CT and digital coronarography results.
