Abstract
Introduction: Double aortic arch is a rare cardiac anomaly that constitutes 1% to 3% of all congenital anomalies. Prenatal diagnoses of such conditions are rare.

Case Presentation: We present a case of double aortic arch with compression of the trachea that was diagnosed during the 20th week of gestation. The baby was delivered during the 29th week of gestation via cesarean and the diagnosis was confirmed with computerized tomography (CT) angiography. Later, a surgical repair was undertaken; however, the patient succumbed to pulmonary complications 3 months after delivery.

Conclusions: Aortic arch anomalies are a rare and diverse group of congenital heart anomalies. Prenatal diagnosis is possible and beneficial in cases with tracheal compression as it allows for early intervention after birth.
