A case of a single coronary artery in a 13-month-old colored male child is reported. The anomaly probably contributed to death, as it was present in a dilated hypertrophied heart in a patient with severe anemia. A review of the autopsy files of the Department of Pathology, Jefferson Davis Hospital, Houston, Texas, revealed 9 examples of different coronary artery anomalies in children and in 10 adults. In one infant, both coronary arteries originated from the pulmonary artery. The importance of careful examination of the coronary system is stressed, and the different types of coronary anomalies are described. From the review of the reported cases it appears that in the absence of other cardiac abnormalities, the presence of a single coronary artery does not produce cardiac disease and does not decrease life expectancy.
