An example of a rare cause of esophageal dysphagia in the neonatal period is lusuric dysphagia, which occurs in patients with Commerel's diverticulum. This anomaly is a conical expansion of the proximal part of the aberrant subclavian artery near its origin from the aorta. Manifesting dysphagic and respiratory disorders, it requires the exclusion of other causes and pathological conditions, including those with diencephalic syndrome of various etiologies, malformations of the gastrointestinal tract and lungs. The main diagnostic methods are computed tomography and magnetic resonance angiography. The choice of surgical tactics depends on the anatomical features of the pathology in a particular patient.

Key words

esophageal dysphagia, aortic anomaly, Kommerel's diverticulum, newborn.
