The presented case and discussion illustrate the use of CT coronary angiography to depict coronary artery fistulae. A 41-year-old man presented with an acute myocardial infarction. Invasive angiography revealed an incidental coronary artery fistula but was unable to depict its course. CT coronary angiography was undertaken to define the course and termination of the fistula. This confirmed a fistulous connection between the left circumflex artery and the superior vena cava that followed the typical course of an S-shaped sinoatrial nodal artery. Even in such an unusual anomaly this case highlights the ability of CT coronary angiography to accurately depict the coronary artery anatomy.
