Coronary cameral fistulas (CCFs) are rare arteriovenous malformations that may be congenital or acquired. The presentation of CCFs varies from asymptomatic in early age to symptomatic and start of complications upon aging. Although percutaneous closure with embolization can also be done, surgical closure of CCFs is a gold standard of treatment. We present the case of a 20-year-old patient with a fistula connecting right coronary artery and the right atrium, along with aortic valve endocarditis and congestive cardiac failure.
