Abstract

Pulmonary artery sling (PAS) is a rare congenital vascular anomaly. Ninety percent of patients with PAS have respiratory distress and need surgical correction. Asymptomatic adult presentation of PAS is rare. We report the case of a 56-year-old female with an asymptomatic left pulmonary artery sling.
