Anomalous right coronary artery is a rare entity. Here we present an anomalous right coronary artery coursing on the right atrium detected during CABG operation and confirmed by multislice computed tomography thereafter. The images demonstrated that RCA arises from the right coronary sinus of Valsalva and runs forward between the pulmonary trunk and the right auricle. Then it was giving branch to the right ventricle and coursing approximately 0.5 cm on the right side of atrioventricular junction on the right atrium.
