A rare condition causing dysphagia: Aberrant right subclavian artery
Eyi, Yusuf Emrah
MetadataShow full item record
Dysphagia lusoria is a secondary condition caused by the compression of the esophagus with an aberrant right subclavian artery. This anomaly usually involves the right subclavian artery and occasionally the left subclavian artery. Most cases remain asymptomatic. Therefore, dysphagia lusoria is quite a rare phenomenon, which doctors may not face throughout their careers. In this report, the aberrant right subclavian artery of a patient suffering from underestimated dysphagia, which was incidentally diagnosed using chest computed tomography, is presented.
