Although congenital aortic anomalies are often symptomatic during the first years of life, it may be asymptomatic until adolescence. Right aortic arch (RAA) is a rare condition but it is the most frequently encountered anomalies of the aorta. Twenty four year-old male patient didn't have any respiratory symptom and there was no important feature in his medical and family history. Chest X-ray revealed RAA and enlargement of upper mediastinum. Thorax computed tomography demonstrated the aortic arch located on the right side of the trachea and aberrant left subclavian artery behind the oesophagus and trachea, with normal lung parenchyma. There was no abnormal findings on echocardiographic examination performed to investigate additional cardiac anomalies. We decided clinical follow-up for the patient diagnosed RAA with aberrant left subclavian artery due to the lack of additional cardiac malformations and symptom.
