Anomalous origin of coronary arteries is a rare anatomical defect and its association with acute myocardial infarction is unusual. We report a 58-year-old male with ST-Segment elevation. Myocardial infarction of the inferior wall caused by a total occlusion on the proximal third of an anomalous right coronary artery, that was effectively treated with primary angioplasty with stent placement. The patient had a favorable outcome and is asymptomatic after five years of follow up.
