A single coronary artery is a very rare condition, commonly associated with other congenital anomalies. It could be generally considered as neither benign nor malignant form of congenital coronary artery anomalies since its pathophysiological and clinical implications grossly depend on different anatomical patterns defined by the site of origin and distribution of the branches. By presenting the patient who underwent successful coronary artery bypass grafting and aortic valve replacement surgery in a presence of isolated single coronary artery, we intend to emphasize natural and procedural risks and distinguish casual from causal in this extremely rare clinical and surgical scenario.
