ABSTRACT
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.

    Absence of the left circumflex coronary artery (LCX) is a very rare coronary anomaly. The anomaly has been reported in only 0.003% of all patients who underwent routine coronary angiography. Although rare, the failure to visualize a coronary artery in its expected anatomical location might cause...
