Coronary artery fistula is rare anomalies. Most adult patients are usually asymptomatic. A fistula is incidentally identified in the adult using echocardiography. Coronary angiography is considered the standard tool to confirm a coronary artery fistula. However, multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) angiography is considered a good alternative to coronary angiography.
