Abstract: Simultaneous thrombotic occlusion of multiple coronary arteries in acute myocardial infarction is a well-recognised phenomenon. Studies have reported diffuse destabilisation of atherosclerotic plaques in patients with acute myocardial infarction, leading to the concept of "pan-coronaritis". The putative mechanism is attributed to a systemic thrombophilic and inflammatory state. We report the occurrence of this phenomenon in two middle-aged male patients.
