Abstract

Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries can be responsible for myocardial ischemia in absence of obstructive coronary artery disease. The circumflex coronary artery originating from the right coronary artery, in absence of other cardiac abnormalities, is an extremely rare condition, and has never been reported as a cause of myocardial ischemia. This report describes one patient with myocardial ischemia due to an anomalous origin of the circumflex coronary artery from the right coronary artery without any other structural cardiac abnormality.
