Congenital absence of a coronary artery is a rare condition that may be clinically silent or may produce fatal conditions such as myocardial infarction or sudden cardiac death. A case of a 41-year old hypertensive female presenting with chest pain was reviewed. Work-up done to the patient include coronary angiography revealing an absent right coronary artery. The right side of the heart is supplied by the septal perforators coming from the left anterior descending artery. Accurate knowledge of the anatomy of the coronary vessels in patients with anomalous arteries is crucial in the management of such patients.
