    We report on a 40 year old woman who presented with typical unstable angina pectoris associated with pulmonary oedema, due to poorly controlled hyperthyroidism. No cardiac abnormality was detected by echo-Doppler and nuclear ventriculography. Coronary angiography demonstrated normal coronary arteries. This case represents a new manifestation of the known association of cardiac ischaemia with hyperthyroidism in the presence of normal coronary arteries.
