Abstract

An 87-year-old patient was admitted to hospital for a diagnosis of syncope. Chest radiography showed an image that required a differential diagnosis. Computed tomography revealed a double aortic arch with a slight compression of the trachea and esophagus. Atrial fibrillation was diagnosed as the reason for syncope. The patient was discharged from the hospital with instructions for periodic follow-up.
