Single coronary artery is defined as a rare congenital anomaly of the coronary arteries that only one coronary artery arises from the aortic root by a single coronary ostium, supplying the entire heart. It should be recognized as potentially dangerous and may present hazards such as sudden death. Also, it should be taken into consideration to avoid probable complications during coronary interventions and surgery and for making correct diagnosis and therapeutic approaches. We aimed to disscuss clinical significance of single coronary artery by presentation of 2 cases that are examples of 2 distinct types of this anomaly. (Türk Kardiyol Dern Arş 2004; 32: 322-325)
