Abstract

A 48-year-old woman was admitted to our institution with angina pectoris and a systolic murmur. At cardiac catheterization, she was found to have an anomalous origin of the left anterior descending coronary artery from the pulmonary trunk. There was also an associated atrial septal defect and a bicuspid aortic valve.
