Dysphagia lusoria is used to describe the symptomatic compression of the esophagus from an anomalous vessel of the aortic arch. A right aortic arch with an aberrant left subclavian artery is the most common type of aortic arch abnormalities, followed by double aortic arch, and then an aberrant right subclavian artery. These anomalous vessels may cause dysphagia from the compression of the esophagus in adults, but they usually do not produce symptoms and they are usually found incidentally. Several cases of adult dysphagia lusoria have been reported in Korea, but there has been no reported case in an adolescent. We experienced a case of a 17-year-old female who suffered from dysphagia. We evaluated the possible causes of her dysphagia by performing esophagogastroduodenoscopy, esophagoraphy, esophageal manometry and chest computed tomography. We finally diagnosed this case as dysphagia lusoria caused by an aberrant right subclavian artery. (Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 2008;36:213-218)
