Anomalous origin of the main coronary arteries from the aorta is rare.We report a case with a single coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva associated with atherosclerosis.The patient was treated with a coronary artery bypass procedure: left internal mammary artery (LIMA) to the left anterior descending artery (LAD),right internal mammary artery (RIMA) to the right coronary artery (RCA).The postoperative course was uneventful.
