In this report we present a patient with a single coronary ostium, with both the left and right coronary artery systems arising from it. The right coronary artery was found to contain a significant flow-limiting lesion that was successfully treated with percutaneous coronary intervention.Keywords: single coronary artery, percutaneous coronary intervention
