Coronary artery spasm is one of the well-known causes of anginal chest pain. We presented the case of prolonged spasm of the left anterior descending coronary artery which happened during coronary angiography leading to pulse less state and low blood pressure with syncope and appearing of ventricular fibrillation on ECG. During one hour of successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the patient had again normal pulse and blood pressure. Coronary angiography performed immediately after DC’s showed normal coronary angiogram. After two days the patient left the hospital without brain disorders.
