[FIGURE 2 OMITTED]
The association of aortopulmonary window with anomalous right coronary artery originating from pulmonary artery is a very rare entity. As all patients with similar association had dominated signs of aortopulmonary window, associated anomalies are mostly overlooked. However, patients having complications related to ischemic events are candidates for careful evaluation of any coronary arterial anomaly. Early surgical intervention is mandatory because of high risk of irreversible pulmonary vascular disease.
