Abstract

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery is a rare congenital condition that proves to be fatal in most individuals during childhood due to significant left ventricular ischaemia. However, there are case reports of individuals surviving into adulthood that have varying presenting symptoms. We report a case of a young male, who presented to our cardiology clinic with typical ischaemic cardiac pain, with no established risk factors, and was found to have anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery that was subsequently surgically corrected.
