Anomalies of the coronary artery are often asymptomatic and uncommon. Double right coronary artery (RCA) is a very rare coronary anomaly. So far, the number of reported cases of double RCA is not many. Nevertheless, there have been several reports of double RCA in the literature, particularly in the last decade. We aim to present a similar case. Multidetector computed tomography (CT) is becoming an alternative method for the diagnosis of coronary artery anomalies. We present the multidetector coronary CT angiography findings from a patient with RCA duplication. Two right coronary arteries originating from two separate ostia of the right aortic sinus were observed.
