Anomalous left coronary artery originated from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare cardiac abnormality (incidence: <0.5%). We experienced an extremely rare case of ALCAPA that discovered with the self-reported symptom of epigastralgia for two years, though the abdominal examinations were totally normal.
