Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) have assumed an increasingly vital role in treating various hematologic and oncologic malignancies. However, adverse effects with respect to vascular disease have been reported following administration of this class of medications. Here, we present a case report of TKI toxicity, manifesting as comorbid Moyamoya syndrome and obstructive coronary artery disease leading to a type 1 non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. This patient eventually required percutaneous coronary intervention with drug-eluting stent placement in the right coronary artery. Given the expanding indications of TKI therapy, this case highlights a growing population subset which may require coronary and/or peripheral interventions to treat sequela from otherwise life-prolonging treatment.
