Although rare, the aberrant right subclavian artery (arteria lusoria) is the most frequent anatomical variant of the aortic arch and can be responsible of dysphagia. Its association with oesophagal cancer, which is another cause of dysphagia, is exceptional. We report the case of a 41-year-old female patient in whom this association was present. The preoperative identification of these associated anomalies by CT scan, allowed to perform a transhiatal esophagectomy while avoiding potential surgical complications.

Key words: arteria lusoria, aberrant right subclavian artery, dysphagia lusoria, esophageal cancer, transhiatal esophagectomy
