Özet

Pseudocoarctation, also known as kinking or buckling of the aorta, is an uncommon anomaly. Its recognition is important, because it may be mistaken for true coarctation, aneurysm or mediastinal neoplasm. A case of pseudocoarctation associated with left cervical aorta is reported. The present case is unique in the demonstration of obvious tortuosity and kink formation of the cervical aorta and main branches without frank aneurysm formation. Magnetic resonance angiography as a noninvasive imaging modality was suggested for the definitive diagnosis of cervical aortic arch and its accompanying anomalies.
