Abstract

Coronary pulmonary fistulae are rare cardiac anomalies. We present the case of a 46-year-old woman with multiple coronary-pulmonary fistulae involving all three coronary arteries. She presented with atypical chest pain and had no obstructive coronary lesion. SPECT thallium study demonstrated no perfusion defect. The fistulae were multiple but small with only a small left to right shunt (Qp:Qs = 1.2). The patient has remained well without intervention.
