Abstract

We report the first case of dysphagia due to engorgement of a congenital vascular ring as a result of the haemodynamic changes of pregnancy. The clinician should be aware of this in the differential diagnosis.Spontaneous recovery may occur six months post partum as the haemodynamic changes resolve, but if further pregnancies are planned surgery is effective.
