Abstract

Singular coronary arteries are a rare feature appearing in approximately 0.05% of the population. The clinical relevance of those anomalies varies a lot. The wide range of descriptions reaches from asymptomatic cases to sudden cardiac death. This will be discussed in a case report concerning a 31-year-old woman who was found dead in her apartment. Due to drugs that were found next to her, a suicide was assumed. The autopsy yielded an aplastic right coronary artery and a left coronary artery with an anomalous origin of the circumflex branch as well as a myocardial scar. The autopsy findings and the results of the toxicological examinations are presented and discussed in view of the cause of death. © 2007.
