      ABERRANT RIGHT SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY - case report (Abstract): Aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA), also known as arteria lusoria, is a rare anomaly, in which the right subclavian artery arises directly from the aortic arch instead of originating from the brachiocephalic artery. Material and method: We present a 69-year old man, with a medical history of gastroesophageal reflux disease, presented with intermittent dysphagia for two-years, which has now worsened. Results: The CT revealed an aberrant right subclavian artery Kommerell’s diverticulum, without aneurysmal degeneration. Conclusions: Although ARSA is clinically silent, his presence, especially, should be taken into consideration to distinguish from other causes of dysphagia. The hypothesis that clinically overt arteria lusoria is due to atherosclerotic wall and vessel stiffness is supported by older age symptomatic patients.
