Coronary artery anomalies are potentially life-threatening anatomic variants that occur in approximately 1% of patients. Many of these anomalies are clinically benign; however, others are associated with serious morbidity. We describe the case of a patient in whom evaluation of angina pectoris revealed an anomalous right coronary artery arising from the left coronary sinus. At the coronary angiography the proximal segment of the right coronary artery was diffusely narrowed. Multislice computed tomography coronary angiography revealed a malignant anomalous right coronary artery.
