Reported herein is a coronary anomaly that occurred in a young adolescent athlete who presented with cardiopulmonary arrest. The patient was resuscitated and treated with therapeutic hypothermia.

Enhanced computed tomography of the heart indicated an anomalous left main coronary artery originating from the right coronary sinus and coursing between the aorta and the pulmonary artery. The patient underwent surgical intervention with coronary artery bypass grafting to prevent symptom recurrence.
