We report the case of a 52-year old woman who presented with a 4-year history of depression associated with intermittent dysphagia and globus sensation for which she was admitted to a nursing home. Physical examination revealed a murmur on the right carotid artery, while the routine biochemical tests were normal. Chest computer tomography (CT) demonstrated the presence of an anomalous vessel departing from the aortic arch; angiography showed an aberrant right subclavian artery of large lumen and a severe stenosis at the origin of the right internal carotid artery. Surgical intervention was performed and dysphagia disappeared.
