Abstract

Aortic arch anomalies are rare, but when present the aberrant vessels may simulate significant vascular abnormality on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). We report a case of aberrant right common carotid artery. Diagnosis was first suspected on TEE using multiplane and off-axis imaging and subsequently confirmed on magnetic resonance angiography.
