We report a case of a 60-year-old male patient who presented to the Emergency Department of Christian Medical College, Vellore, with a history of right-sided pleuritic chest pain. Thoracic aortic aneurysms are usually asymptomatic unless any complication occurs (e.g., dissection, rupture) or an imaging study has been performed demonstrating the aneurysm. Chest radiograph of this patient showed collapse of right main bronchus due to an aneurysm, which to our knowledge has not been previously reported in literature.
