Case Study
The article describes the case of a 53-year-old man whose coronary angiogram showed an anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) from tbe left anterior descending artery (LAD). The patient was referred for an exercise thallium stress test due to progressive dyspnea and decreased capacity to endure exercise. The study is noted to be the first report of two coincident coronary anomalies. The irregularities revealed by angiography were not considered to be the cause of his clinical presentation.
