Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary trunk is suspected with electrocardiographic evidence of myocardial infarction in patients with left ventricular failure and cardiomegaly; the diagnosis is made by selective angiography. Visualization of the myocardium on a lung scan in the case reported provided the necessary information for the diagnosis before the patient's condition permitted catherization.
