[A case of anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery in the elderly].

The anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) syndrome is a rare congenital coronary artery anomaly.

Coronary computed tomography, associated with other imaging modalities, has played a crucial role in accurately defining the origin, the course and the connection of the coronary arteries.
