Abstract
The anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (Bland-White -Garland Syndrome) is a relatively rare congenital heart disease, in which the right coronary artery arises normally while the left comoary artery arises from the pulmonary artery. We experienced a case of this anomaly without any other cardiac defect in a 4 month-old female infant. The diagnosis was suspected on the basis of electrocardiogram and echocardiogram, and confirmed by aortogram. Characteristic findings of electrocardiogram, echocardiogram and angiocardiogram were described, and a brief review of literature was made.
Key Words: Bland-White-Garland Syndrome
