Cardiac haemangioma and coronary-pulmonary artery fistula are both rare entities. We present the case of a 45-year-old symptomatic male patient with a rare cardiac cavernous haemangioma. During assessment, coronary-pulmonary artery fistula was diagnosed by computed tomographic angiography (CTA) of the coronary artery. As far as we know, this is the first case in which cardiac haemangioma has been found to co-exist with coronary-pulmonary artery fistula. Surgery remains the most effective form of therapy. Meanwhile, in patients with heart issues, CTA of the coronary artery has its particularly advantages that can reduce the risk of a second operation and missed diagnosis. We also performed an electronic search of the published literature in English on cases of cardiac haemangioma.
