Abstract

Single coronary artery (SCA) anomaly is a rare angiographic finding and majority of the patients are asymptomatic; however, myocardial ischemia and sudden death have been reported. We report a 26 year old male patient with SCA with acute myocardial infarction, in whom successful coronary angioplasty was performed to the left anterior descending artery through an anomalous of the right coronary artery, originating from the proximal part of the circumflex coronary artery. The patient was discharged with uneventful recovery.
