Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital coronary artery defect leading to sudden cardiac death. Diagnosis is made after the onset of symptoms, mainly in the pediatric population. We describe an uncommon presentation of ALCAPA and rheumatic mitral valve regurgitation, diagnosed by a coronary 64-CT scan performed before a planned mitral valve repair operation.

Abstract

Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital coronary artery defect leading to sudden cardiac death. Diagnosis is made after the onset of symptoms, mainly in the pediatric population. We describe an uncommon presentation of ALCAPA and rheumatic mitral valve regurgitation, diagnosed by a coronary 64-CT scan performed before a planned mitral valve repair operation.
