In the diverse anomalies of coronary arteries, the Single coronary artery arising from the single aortic sinus is the rarest one to find, with a reported incidence of less than 0.03% in the general population undergoing through coronary angiography, Coronary tomography angiography of the coronary arteries or by postmortem evaluation. Clinical presentations from simple angina pectoris to sudden cardiac death and life expectancy have shown variations among the patients of different ages; young patients are more vulnerable to sudden cardiac death, while middle-age patients have revealed long life survival on a single coronary artery. Various classifications have been documented on an isolated coronary artery based on its origin as well as on its anatomical distribution of the equivalent branches arising from single coronary artery. We are going to present a case report of an isolated coronary artery crop up from right aortic sinus subtype of (R-IIA) in a female patient of 64 years old lately died due cerebral hemorrhagic stroke.
