Coronary-pulmonary artery fistula is an uncommon cardiac anomaly, usually congenital. Most coronary-pulmonary artery fistulas are clinically and haemodynamically insignificant and are usually found incidentally. This report describes a case of complex coronary-pulmonary artery fistula with two feeding vessels of separate origins: one from the proximal part of the left anterior descending artery and another arising from the right aortic cusp. The complex anatomy of the fistula was shown in detail by multidetector computed tomography using multiplanar reconstruction and 3D volume rendering techniques.
