Arteriolar disease of the heart is relatively rare. In a large autopsy service it is occasionally found with the more severe grades of coronary arteriosclerosis. Plaut and Kramer1 have reported a case of hyaline degeneration with extensive myomalacia and relatively intact coronary arteries. This report deals with a case of severe cardiac failure and complete heart block, with widespread medial hypertrophy of the arterioles of the heart, minimal changes of the larger coronary arteries, a diffuse thickening of the parietal endocardium, intact valves and microscopic necroses of the myocardial fibers.
The patient was a white man, 41 years
