Dysphagia lusoria
Two weeks of dysphagia or pain during swallowing are cardinal symptoms that trigger immediate referral to a specialist de­partment, where the patient undergo endoscopy and eventual biopsy of the upper GI tract to rule out cancerous disease. In this case, a 90-year old woman was referred, due to month long pain during swallowing.

The condition is termed dysphagia lusoria and is benign.
