An anomalous origin of the left coronary artery arising from the pulmonary artery is a congenital malformation rarely described in adults. We report the case of a 65-year-old patient with this anomaly. Clinical presentation, imaging identification (coronary angiogram, MRI and electron-beam CT), surgical treatment and angiographic long-term follow-up are described.
