The most common coronary anomaly is the left circumflex artery (LCX) arising from the proximal right coronary artery (RCA). This variant is benign. The anomalous RCA often originates from the left sinus or from the proximal of the left main coronary artery. This case report presents a single coronary artery that is the RCA originating from the mid left anterior descending artery. The case is rare. We discuss how to make a accurate diagnosis and how to administer appropriate treatment.
