Synopsis

Inflammation of the wall of the coronary arteries, leading to coronary artery necrosis, aneurysm, and/or thrombosis. Its clinical complications include myocardial infarction, ischemic cardiomyopathy, and heart failure. It has been associated with infectious causes, vasculitides, and autoimmune diseases. It can also be caused by spread from adjacent inflammation or hematogenous spread of an infection from a distant site.

Treatment of coronary arteritis is targeted at the underlying disease.
