Congenital coronary artery fistula is a rare congenital heart disease. A 65-year-old female case was admitted to our outpatient clinic with the complaints of back and chest pain lasting for one year and increasing with exercise. A fistula originating from the left anterior descending coronary artery and drained into the main pulmonary artery was detected. The fistula was ligated using off-pump cardiopulmonary bypass.
