Özet

Acute coronary syndrome is a cause of cardiac-induced chest pain and rarely seen among childhood. It should be kept in mind in patients presenting with typical chest pain with a history of CHD and/or surgery, as this will lead to life-threatening complications and death. We present an adolescent with a history of Bentall operation who had acute coronary syndrome owing to coronary thrombosis as a result of inappropriate drug use.
