Coronary arteriovenous fistula is an uncommon anomaly, occurring as an incidental finding in 0,1% to 0,2% of coronary angiograms. We describe a symptomatic patient with the proximal part of the left circumflex artery connected to the pulmonary artery through a fistula, as an unusual case.

Keywords: Coronary arteriovenous fistula, coronary angiograms, drainage
