Ligamentum arteriosum calcification is the calcification or ossification of
arterial ligaments. However, on computed tomography images, ligamentum
arteriosum calcification is often mistaken for esophageal perforation when a
patient has a medical history of foreign body ingestion. Ligamentum arteriosum
calcification is uncommon in clinical practice. In this case report, we confirm
the presence of this condition intraoperatively, which has seldom been reported
previously. Increased awareness of the clinical characteristics of this uncommon
disease can help thoracic surgeons with proper patient management.
