Congenital coronary artery anomalies are a diverse group of congenital disorders and an uncommon cause of acute coronary syndrome. We describe the case of a 48-year old woman with severe hypoplasia of the left main and left anterior descending coronary arteries associated with non-STsegment elevation acute myocardial infarction. Differential diagnoses and treatment options are evaluated. The patient underwent surgery with favorable outcomes.
