The article reports on a chest radiograph of a 75-year-old women who was referred with a long history of dysphagia and wheezing. It is said that the chest radiograph revealed the presence of bilateral paratracheal stripes of abnormal appearance. It is further said that the findings revealed the presence of a right-sided aortic arch with an aberrant retro-oesophageal left subclavian artery arising from a Kommerell's diverticulum.
