We report a rare morphological variant of the left coronary artery in this case of a female embalmed cadaver, where in the heart was nourished by double anterior and posterior interventricular arteries. These were branches of the left coronary artery and it was also observed that distribution of right coronary artery was very limited. The deceased may have been without symptoms in her life, but a prior knowledge of this kind of presentation would be very much informative to the interventional cardiologist and cardiothoracic surgeons in their protocol of treatment. This has implications for the coronary angiography and subsequent management of the ischemic heart disease.
