In recent literature on heart disease coronary thrombosis has occupied an increasingly important part of discussions on cardiac infarction. On the other hand, embolism of the coronary arteries with resultant cardiac infarction is infrequently mentioned. Up to 1933 Saphir1 was able to find only 11 proved cases of this type, and to these he added three. During the last six years additional cases have been reported by Böger and Paradi,2 Hoseason,3 and by Cobo, Quirno, and del Rio.4 The rare occurrence of coronary embolism is usually attributed to the anatomical situation of the coronary arteries.
