Though the normal epicardial coronary arteries, patients present with debilitating chest pain which increases morbidity and poor quality of life. The particular cause of Cardiac syndrome X is still unknown. Many large trails are on going to detect exact pathogenesis of this condition. A multiple treatment regimens may reduce the morbidity and improve the quality of life of these patients.
