We report an association between low insulin-like growth factor-I concentrations and angiographically documented significant coronary artery disease in nonobese, nondiabetic relatively young men. Although there appears to be no clear explanation, we suggest a role for the low insulin-like growth factor-I concentration, an expression of abnormal growth hormone secretory pattern, in the scheme of the polymetabolic syndrome.
