Abstract: A 51-year-old male patient with a past history of lung tuberculosis was referred to our clinic for routine control. The patient reported no complaints and chest X-ray was normal. Three-dimensional thoracic computed tomography revealed a balanced-type double aortic arch with no compression of trachea or esophagus.
