Introduction: Although aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA) is a rare abnormality but it is the most common anomaly of aortic arch. Compressive effects of the artery are responsible for the patients’ symptoms. Association of this disorder with other anomalies and necessity of treatment in symptomatic patients are the important aspects of this condition.
Case Presentation: Here we describe a 12 years old girl with dysphagia and ultimate diagnosis of ARSA. The ligation procedure of the artery was successful without any complications.
Conclusion: Dysphagia could be the main symptom of the ARSA in children as same as old adults.
