Congenital anomalous origin of coronary arteries is rare and occurs in 0.2%–2% of patients undergoing coronary angiography (CAG). Most of the cases are benign but may present with life-threatening symptoms such as myocardial ischemia or sudden cardiac death. The prognosis depends on the site of origin of the anomalous artery, intramyocardial course, and relation to other great vessel and cardiac structures. Increased awareness and easy availability of noninvasive methods like computed tomography CAG have led to more reporting of such cases. Here, we report the case a 52-year-old male with a double right coronary artery having anomalous origin from a noncoronary aortic cusp detected during CAG which has not been reported in the literature before.
