Aim: To evaluate the frequency and different types of congenital coronary arteries anomalies and their imaging features. Methods: Our retrospective study will include 5250 patients, aged 18-75 years, of both sexes, with history of chest pain at King Hussein Hospital during the 2020 period. There are many types of congenital coronary arteries anomalies for example: when the right coronary artery (RCA) arising from the left coronary sinus instead of the right coronary sinus this anomaly is the most common anomaly, the other anomalies include left main coronary artery (LM) arising from the right coronary sinus instead of the left coronary sinus, Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery and absent of any of the coronary arteries. Conclusions: Multiple types of congenital coronary arteries are present, some of them are asymptomatic, the others are predisposing for myocardial ischemia and could be lethal. The coronary arteries congenital anomalies are not common but are very vital to detect early, to avoid complications. It can be occur in isolation or associated with other congenital anomalies.
