Anomalous Left Coronary Artery from the Pulmonary Artery, also known as Bland-White-Garland Syndrome, ALCAPA or ALCAPA syndrome, is a rare congenital anomaly in which the left coronary artery, which normally branches off the aorta instead branches off the pulmonary artery.[1] The syndrome is named for Edward Franklin Bland, Paul Dudley White, and Joseph Garland.
