Interestingly, some patients with ST elevation myocardial infarction have normal coronary artery anatomy at cooronary angiography. This situation is called as MINCA acute myocardial infarction with normal coronary artery. The incidence of MINCA varies between 1.0% and 8.5%. Although some reasons have been propounded, the exact underlying mechanism remains unclear. Nevertheless, thoracic myelitis can be as a possible cause of myocardial infarction. Herein, we report a case of acute myocardial infarction with normal coronary artery in a patient with multiple sclerosis.
