      Abstract

      Fetal or newborn coronary fistulae are very rare cardiac anomalies, and they rarely require emergent intervention. The most common form of the coronary fistula is between a coronary artery and a right heart chamber. A coronary steal and increased volume load of the left ventricle may ensue. We present a male neonate with an antenatally diagnosed a coronary fistula that became symptomatic after seven days of life.
