Coronary-cameral fistulas (CCFs) constitute a rare anomaly that can be incidentally detected during angiography. CCFs are solitary, large or small assemblies that originate from coronary arteries and enter one of the cardiac chambers. We describe a 29-year-old woman, whoreferred to our clinic with the chief complaints of palpitation, atypical chest pain, and dyspnea on exertion (functional class II). Multimodality imaging confirmed the diagnosis of a CCF from the left main with extension to the right atrium and drainage therein. The CCF was closed percutaneously with a patent ductus arteriosus occluder successfully.
