Coronary artery fistulas are rare cardiac conditions which constitute a subgroup of anomalies of the coronary arteries. Though majority are asymptomatic, they may be associated with high prevalence of late symptoms and complications. Accurate identification of the fistulas, their hemodynamic significance and associated conditions generally influence management strategies. Dual source computed tomographic evaluation is valuable in delineating its precise morphology with identification and characterization of associated anomalies, thereby assisting in mapping the ideal treatment option.
