Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) for ischemic heart disease associated with acromegaly has never been reported in Japan, though coronary artery sclerosis is known as complicating factor in acromegaly. A 44-year-old man with ischemic heart disease was admitted to our hospital and emergency percutaneous transluminal coronary recanalization was performed. After admission, he was diagnosed as acromegaly from endocrinological studies and operated on CABG. The peri- and post-operative course was uneventful in spite of our fear for complications due to acromegalic heart muscle disease.
