We present here the fourth patient in the literature, over the age of 50 years old, with an abnormal right coronary artery arising from the pulmonary artery, who was successfully treated with surgery. Pre-operative computerised tomography (CT) angiography revealed an abnormal right coronary artery arising from the pulmonary artery. The right coronary artery was surgically transposed from the pulmonary artery to the ascending aorta with the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass. The patient had an uneventful postoperative course and the corrected anatomy was documented by postoperative CT angiography.
