Hemangioma is a rare tumor of the mediastinum. There are a very small number of patients identified with a combination of mediastinal hemangioma and aortic arch anomaly in the medical literature review. Here we present a fatal case of a 2-month-old female infant having mediastinal hemangioma compressing the trachea accompanied by a right-sided aortic arch with an aberrant left subclavian artery.
