The title "Atypical Coronary Disease" was selected advisedly, since the term coronary disease has long been used synonymously with coronary sclerosis (atheromatous). In this sense, disease of the coronary arteries on any other basis would be atypical.
Our interest in atypical changes in the vascular system as affecting the coronary vessels was stimulated by a series of 10 cases observed at the Station Hospital, Fort Ord, California over a three month period.
None of the patients died, so that in the absence of autopsy investigations, one can, at best, only postulate as to the pathology or its etiologic basis.
