The prevalence of coronary anomalies is about 1.3% among patients who undergo coronary angiography. Although the majority of coronary artery anomalies are incidental findings and are not clinically significant, the interarterial course between the great vessels of the aberrant artery may be responsible for syncope, angina, arrhythmias or sudden death. There are only a few case reports in the literature that describe the origin of all coronary arteries from a single ostium. This type of anomaly has been seen in only 0.024-0.044% of the population. This is a first case where not only was there a common ostium of the left anterior descending artery and right coronary artery without a left main, but an absent left circumflex artery with blood supply of its territory by a posterolateral/marginal branch from the right posterior descending artery and conal branch.
