A 60-year-old patient with variant angina was shown to have myocardial ischemia in two different regions supplied by separate major coronary arteries. Neither artery had significant coronary atherosclerotic obstruction. Ventricular fibrillation was noted during ST-segment elevation in anteroseptal leads. The attacks of pain and arrhythmias disappeared during nifedipine therapy.
