Myocardial bridging, a congenital coronary anomaly, is a cluster of myocardial fibers crossing over the epicardial coronary arteries. It is most frequently seen in the left anterior descending artery (LAD), and rarely involves the circumflex (CX) and right coronary artery (RCA). We report a patient with an unusual coronary bridge crossing over the left anterior descending, obtuse marginal and ramus intermediate branches. The patient presented with exercise-induced angina pectoris that was relieved with medical therapy.
