Coronary arteriovenous (AV) fistula is a rare congenital anomaly, mostly diagnosed incidentally during routine coronary angiography. We report a symptomatic patient with right coronary artery to coronary sinus (RCA-CS) fistula, complicated by aneurysmal dilatation and thrombosis of the CS, causing severe mitral regurgitation (MR) and tricuspid regurgitation (TR).
