Congenital coronary-pulmonary artery fistula is rare in patients with pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect. The nomenclature, physiological, clinical, and surgical implications of these fistulas are yet to be defined. We report a one-year-old child with pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defect, and a right coronary-pulmonary artery fistula who also had a diminutive, disconnected left pulmonary artery in addition to aortopulmonary collaterals. The patient underwent corrective surgery. However, the fate of diminutive pulmonary arteries is unknown. The literature was reviewed to explore the clinical or surgical implications of such fistulas for improved understanding and management in the future.
