Sinus node artery originates from the proximal segment of the right coronary artery, left circumflex artery, or from both. We present a 55-year-old man who underwent coronary angiography for exercise-induced chest pain localized in the epigastric region that resolved within several minutes of resting. He had an anomalous sinus node artery originating from the left anterior descending artery and right coronary artery agenesis. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of coexistence of these two rare coronary anomalies.
