Occasionally opportunities have been afforded for securing electrocardiograms of patients with angina pectoris during a spontaneous paroxysm. These
have shown distinct changes resembling those found after thrombosis of a large coronary artery.1 We should like to place on record our electrocardiographic findings in a patient observed before, during, and after a spontaneous attack of angina pectoris.
Mr. F. Van V., aged 46, was seen in the office by one of us (F. S. R.) on January 3, 1944, complaining of substernal distress on exertion. A brief history was obtained, an electrocardiogram was taken, and an appointment was made
