Abstract

A ten-year-old female was admitted with syncope and a myocardial infarction, was resuscitated, and was diagnosed with anomalous left coronary artery from right aortic sinus. After initial stabilization, she was on bed rest in the intensive care unit awaiting surgery and experienced sudden arrest and could not be resuscitated, resulting in death.
