We report a 68-year-old patient who pesented with symptoms of both coronary and cerebrovascular insufficiency. Physical activity of the left arm aggrevated the occurance of symptoms. He received a coronary bypass operation ten years ago and symptoms of double insufficiency started two years ago. Angiographic examination demonstrated total occlusion of the subclavian artery and stealing of subclavian artery from the left anterior descending artery via the left intrnal mammary artery and from brain via the left vertebral artery. Symptomatic coronary steal syndrome together with subclavian steal syndrome is a recognised but uncommon cause of coronary and cerebral ischemia.
