Coronary artery anomalies resulting in all three coronary arteries arising separately from single sinus of Valsalva is very rare. We report a patient with two coincidental coronary anomalies: absent left main with left anterior descending, and left circumflex arteries arising separately from left sinus of Valsalva along with anomalous origin of right coronary artery from left sinus of Valsalva. Computed tomography angiogram and conventional coronary angiogram showed anomalous right coronary artery from left sinus with an interarterial course, but with no significant lesions. However, there was significant stenosis of left anterior descending and circumflex arteries that was treated with angioplasty and stenting. To the best of our knowledge, absent left main with all three major coronary arteries arising separately from left aortic sinus has never been reported previously.
