Mitral insufficiency caused by ischemia is frequently found in anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery. We report a case of a 25-year-old woman who was diagnosed to have anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery and had successful left internal mammary artery bypass grafting 16 years after mitral valve replacement for mitral insufficiency of an unknown cause in her childhood.
