Coronary atherosclerosis, myocardial bridge, and coronary aneurysm are different causes of myocardial ischemia. Patients with cardiac ischemia can be complicated by acute cholecystitis. A 39-year-old man referred with chest pain and cold sweating and scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) because of severe stenosis in right coronary artery, aneurysm of left circumflex artery, and long-segment muscle bridge in the middle part of left anterior descending artery. He developed acute cholecystitis before operation. Concomitant cholecystectomy and CABG was done. He is the first patient with three different coronary pathologies and simultaneous cholecystitis in the English-language literature who was operated on in a single session.
