Subclavian artery dissection is an uncommon condition, with only a few cases reported in the medical literature. Reported cases have been due to traumatic, nontraumatic, and iatrogenic etiologies. The exact incidence or prevalence in the society remains unclear, and the cases reported are sporadic. Diagnosis is usually with computed tomography. The management usually depends on whether there is ischemia of the tissues supplied by the subclavian artery. Our objective is to present a patient who was diagnosed with nontraumatic subclavian artery dissection but presented with clinical features of aortic dissection prompting a further diagnostic investigation.
