We report a case of a 36-year-old male presented with symptoms of chest pain and the electrocardiographic evidence of ST-segment elevation in inferior and anterior leads. An emergent coronary angiogram showed that both the distal right and mid left descending coronary arteries were totally occluded. Both arteries were successfully ballooned and stented. Multiple cases of simultaneous coronary occlusion have been reported, but the mechanism was still not well understood. In this case, the man had neither coronary risk factors nor positive family history. The laboratory studies revealed a decreased serum-free protein S.
