Right-sided arcus aorta (RSAA) syndrome was new defined in patients with chronic chough and exertional dyspnea. The new six patients with RSAA syndrome were diagnosed in Samsun Medicalpark Hospital, Department of Pulmonary Medicine between July 2012 and December 2013. The ages of the patients ranged from 4 to 78 years and the male to female ratio was 4/2. Three patients were symptomatic due to external compression of the trachea due to right aortic arch. The most common symptoms were exertional dyspnea and chronic cough. In conclusion, in this study, the RSAA syndrome is supported with new patients. We think that it is more common than estimated and all patients with exertional dyspnea and chronic cough should be evaluated for the RSAA syndrome. This syndrome should be considered and can be determined in all age groups.
