ABSTRACT

Coronary artery anomalies are congenital changes in their origin, course, and/or structure. Intercoronary communication is a very rare subset with uni- or bidirectional blood flow between two or more coronary arteries. We present the case of a 70-year-old male patient with acute coronary syndrome, and his coronary angiography incidentally showed a surprising and very rare communication between the left circumflex and right coronary arteries.
