Abstract

Ortner's syndrome is a really rare complication that manifest by hoarseness of voice. It is usually due to left recurrent laryngeal nerve compression. Cardiac causes of Ortner's syndrome are rarely encountered and it is usually due to left atrial enlargement as a complication of valvular lesions affecting mitral valve but other rare causes include ascending aortic aneurysm or pulmonary artery aneurysm. Hereby, we present the 3rd case in the literature to report Ortner's syndrome due to pulmonary artery aneurysm in a 38-year old female patient with previous history of bilharziasis.
