Right-sided aortic arch with Kommerel diverticulum is a rare anatomic variant that is more often fortunately discovered. These states can have some letal complications ( dissection, thrombosis ). However, only a few studies have found an association with lung cancer.
We will first report a case of 52 year old who has this association suspected first on chest X-Ray and confirmed later by chest angio-CT scan who showed an aberrant dilated subclavian artery on its proximal segment. Then we will give some information about the right-sided aortic arch with the kommerel diverticulum and discuss the case

Key words: aortic arch, lung cancer, Kommerel diverticulum, angio CT-scan
