Facial pain due to cardiac anoxia has been demonstrated in three patients. Electrocardiograph and coronary angiograph changes could be associated with the facial pain. An aortocoronary bypass operation in one of the patients eliminated the facial pain. Pain of cardiac origin should be included in the differential diagnosis of orofacial pain, especially when it is associated with effort in elderly patients.
