Knowledge of normal coronary anatomy and its variations or anomalies is essential in heart surgeries. Failure in detection of these anomalies leads to complications. We are reporting a rare case of anomalous origin of right coronary artery from the left posterior aortic sinus (Left sinus of Valsalva) near the left coronary ostium. In the present case, both the coronary arteries rose from the left posterior aortic sinus. The presence of this type of variation is of clinically important in sudden cardiac death cases. Anomalous aortic origin of coronary arteries can lead to myocardial infarction and angina pectoris
