A variety of structural cardiovascular abnormalities have been implicated in deaths of athletes, particularly congenital coronary arteries of anomalous origin, which are rare but major causes of myocardial ischemia and sudden death in young people. We present here the case of a rare congenital coronary artery anomaly in a 16-year-old boy who suffered from acute myocardial infarction due to occlusion of the left main trunk coronary artery, providing specific intravascular ultrasound findings for this anomaly.
