This article presents a case study on patients with coexisting left anterior descending coronary artery-pulmonary artery fistula and mitral valve prolapse in the U.S. With the advent of coronary angiography, congenital abnormalities of the coronary arteries have been revealed in living subjects with a greater frequency. However, such abnormalities considering a normal heart is a relatively rare congenital anomaly.
