Anomalies of the coronary arteries are a heterogeneous group of congenital abnormalities ranging from benign variants, usually asymptomatic, to malignant variants, characterized by an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. Cardiac computed tomography is an excellent tool in the evaluation of coronary vessels anatomy and allows an accurate and easy identification of these anomalies.
