Abstract

An anomalous origin of the coronary artery is rarely seen in clinical practice, and left coronary artery arising from the right coronary artery is an extremely rare anomalous coronary anomaly. Echocardiographic assessment of coronary arteries is an important component of routine cardiovascular evaluation, but detection of an anomalous coronary origin remains a challenge to operators. We report a case of a 42-year-old women presenting to the hospital with atypical chest pain for whom echocardiographic evaluation revealed a coronary artery anomaly.
