The congenital atresia of the left main coronary artery is a very rare form of coronary anomalies with poor clinical outcomes if left untreated. Patients require surgical correction with coronary artery bypass grafting after the diagnosis. Here, we report a case of the congenital left main atresia in a 36-year-old woman who had a previous heart surgery with this anomaly having gone undetected. (Iranian heart Journal 2018; 19(3): 74- 76)
