The article presents research which dealt with the diagnosis of double aortic arch condition in a female neonate. The patient required mechanical ventilation as well as intubation after she showed signs of a severe respiratory distress. She underwent a contrast-enhanced helical computed tomography (CT) scan which helped medical professionals identify the cause of persistent dyspnoea.
