Coronary artery anomaly has been reported at a rate of 0.6% to 1.3% in routine angiographic series. Moreover, single coronary artery is one of the rarest anomalies among coronary anomalies. Eventhough patients with coronary anomalies are usually asymptomatic, they may also be associated with myocardial ischemia, ventricular fibrillation, syncope, congestive heart failure, and sudden death. In this article, we report a case of single coronary artery anomaly with the left anterior descending (LAD) and left circumflex (LCx) coronary artery arising separately from the proximal right coronary artery. Since the presented case was associated with ischemic heart disease, coronary artery bypass grafting was carried out. He is currently well.
