Abstract

ALCAPA is a rare congenital anomaly of the coronary system of the heart in which the left coronary artery, which normally arises from the aorta, takes its origin from the pulmonary artery. It is a cause of myocardial ischemia in infancy and causes up to 90% mortality in the first year of life if left untreated. Diagnosis has become easy with the advent of 2D echocardiography. Surgery is the mainstay of therapy with good short and long term results.

Keywords: ALCAPA, Myocardial ischemia, Pulmonary artery, Coronary artery.
