Coronary artery ectasia (CAE) is detected in approximately 1-5% of all coronary angiography procedures. Coronary artery dilatation is only rarely diagnosed or cannot be recognized generally. There is no consensus regarding the definition of this rare anomaly. A 75-year old female who is a hypertansive and hyperlipidemia with a history of chronic stable angina despite full medical therapy. She was admitted on intensive care unit this time because of a typical chest pain that did not alleviate with sublingual nitroglycerin. Coronary angiography revealed mainly of the diffuse ectasia of three coronary artery and rheumatic heart valve disease. She underwent aortic and mitral replacement and a three-vessel bypass. Her postoperative course was well and she was discharged on the postoperative day 7 th. The patient is doing well on follow-up with no recurrence of symptoms.
