Abstract

Alport syndrome (AS) is a genetic disorder characterized by abnormal alpha chains of type IV collagen in multiple organs including the kidney, cochlea, cornea, lens, and retina. Aortic disease including dissection and aneurysm has been described with AS. We report the first case of multiple coronary aneurysms as a manifestation of AS.
