ABSTRACT
Gobel et al. reported in 1970 on 7 patients with shunts between the coronary and the pulmonary arteries with normal origin of both coronary arteries. The left-to-right shunt in those patients occurred via a communicating vessel or vessels between a major coronary artery and the pulmonary trunk. The purpose of this report is to document a case of atypical progressive angina caused by such a congenital anomaly and atherosclerotic obstructs ions of the coronary arteries.
