Abstract

Anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery is a rare congenital defect. We describe the case of an infant with anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery in association with tetralogy of Fallot. This patient had a pre-operative echocardiographic diagnosis, which was confirmed by angiography, and later underwent a successful surgical repair.
