AbstractCoronary artery disease and myocardial infarction are known complications of long-standing diabetes mellitus in adults, but coronary artery spasm is far more rare and has not been reported in children. We present a 15-year-old male in diabetic ketoacidosis who developed diffuse ST segment elevations and elevated troponin with normal coronary arteries on coronary angiography and no signs of pericarditis that was due to coronary artery spasm. © The Author(s), 2021.
