A 50-year-old man diagnosed with human immunodeficiency virus had been treated with combination antiretroviral therapy. Additionally, he was diagnosed with acute myocardial infarction 9 months earlier and underwent percutaneous coronary intervention. He was allergic to contrast media and had coronary lesions on three branches. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging revealed severe cerebrovascular injuries. He was admitted to our hospital, and off-pump coronary bypass grafting was performed. The patient was discharged 10 days after the surgery with no progression to cerebrovascular accidents, bacterial infections, or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
