The authors report the imaging characteristics of the anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery in a 6(1)/(2)-month- old male infant using electrocardiography, echocardiography, angiography, and electron-beam computed tomography. The patient presented With tachycardia, prolonged and interrupted feeding, failure to thrive, and myocardial infarction, and after diagnosis of the anomalous origin of the left coronary artery, survived the reimplantation of the left coronary artery directly to the ascending aorta. When reviewed 7 months after surgery, echocardiography showed improved left ventricular function and surface electrocardiography showed regression of pathologic Q waves in leads I, V-4, V-5, and V -6.
