Using cardiac computed tomography we examined a 72-year-old woman before surgery because of constrictive pericarditis after radiation therapy. Incidentally we discovered an anatomic variation of the right coronary artery with both atrial and ventricular muscle bridges. According to the patient´s anamnesis and the characteristics of the courses the findings can be classifi ed as not being harmful to the patient.
