In brief: Congenital defect
There are multiple congenital abnormalities involving the origin or anatomy of the coronary arteries.
Some are benign, others require surgical repair. Undiagnosed coronary artery anomalies may result sudden cardiac death in sports. Fortunately, serious abnormalities occur in less than 1 % of births.
