Coronary artery anomalies are rarely seen in patients undergoing coronary arteriography. Single coronary artery anomaly is a rare subgroup. Hypoplastic coronary artery is a rare entity which refers to congenital underdevelopment of one or more main branches of the coronary arteries. The combination of these is extremely rare. Herein, we present a 64-year-old female case with a single coronary artery classified as type R-III with hypoplastic left anterior descending artery.
