    1. Patient Presentation

    • A 13-year-old boy presented with recurrent episodes of acute chest pain.
    • Chest radiography, chest MRI, and electrocardiography were inconclusive. Echocardiography suggested a dilatation and tortuosity of the coronary arteries.
    • Aortic and cardiac CT was performed for further evaluation.
