While the exact cause of SCAD is unknown, associated risk factors are emotional or physical stress, female gender, pregnancy-related factors including hormonal changes, fibromuscular dysplasia, mixed connective tissue disorders, and inflammatory disorders. In this report, we present a middle-aged female with ulcerative colitis and cirrhosis secondary to primary sclerosing cholangitis who was found to have SCAD on cardiac evaluation for liver transplantation workup.
