ABSTRACT
The article focuses on cervical aortic arch anomaly, which is a rare congenital vascular malformation, characterized by an abnormally high position of the aortic arch in the neck. An aortic arch study was performed utilizing a percutaneous right transfemoral approach. On the frontal projection the early arterial phase reveals the ascending aorta to ascend to the right, the apex of the arch reaching a point five centimeters above the right clavicle in the neck. The cervical aortic arch anomaly must be considered in the differential diagnosis of pulsatile masses presenting in the neck as well.
