A 61-year-old man was diagnosed with obesity, diabetes mellitus, and hyperlipidemia associated with insulin resistance in 1988. His condition was complicated with asymptomatic coronary artery disease in 1992. His coronary artery disease gradually progressed during the subsequent 13 years of observation, and he underwent percutaneous coronary intervention four times and also received a coronary artery bypass graft. This is a case of metabolic syndrome with multiple risk factors for arteriosclerosis as visceral obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia, in which the recent rapid progression of coronary artery disease might be associated with the discontinuation of statin after coronary artery bypass graft, accompanied with hyper-LDL-choleterolemia. Patients with metabolic syndrome require most comprehensive and strict therapies against multiple risk factors.
