Abstract

The term refers to an extraordinary disposition of the subclavian artery (lusorian artery) as a cause of oesophageal obstruction. Although most individuals are asymptomatic, they might present with unspecific thoracic pain, dysphagia, dyspnea, arterioesophageal or arteriotracheal fistulae with hematemesis or hemoptysis. This paper presents the first case report in Qatar of a young lady presented with atypical chest pain resulting from dysphagia lusoria caused by a right aortic arch with a diverticulum (of Kommerell) at the origin of an aberrant left subclavian artery and a review of the literature.
