Spontaneous subclavian artery dissection is rarely reported. We report the case of a 55-year-old female who presented as an non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and was found to have a proximal left subclavian dissection. We provide an overview of current articles addressing the clinical features and treatments of subclavian dissection. To our knowledge, this is the first report of subclavian dissection presenting as an NSTEMI.
