Congenital coronary artery anomalies are rare and their incidence is approximately 0.64%–1.3% in population who undergo coronary angiography.[1] Congenital absence of RCA with dominant LCx supplying the whole RCA territory (superdominant) is extremely rare and accounts for about 0.003% of reported coronary anomalies.[2]

Most of the congenital coronary anomalies are benign. The clinical presentation of acute anterior wall ST elevation myocardial infarction in association with complete absence of RCA in our case was a co-incidental finding [Supplementry Video 1].
