Anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA)

In this case, one may observe a neonate who presented at two weeks of life with diaphoresis, difficulty feeding, tachypnea and failure to thrive. The patient was found to have ischemic changes on electrocardiogram and severe LV failure by echocardiography. The coronary artery was found to be attached to the pulmonary artery. Here, you will appreciate by colour Doppler the abnormal implantation of the left coronary artery.
