Ortner's syndrome is a rare clinical entity with hoarseness attributable to recurrent laryngeal nerve palsy in cardiovascular diseases. The mechanism of this condition is thought to be due to compression of the recurrent laryngeal nerve by a dilated, tense cardiovascular structure against its adjacent tissue; thus, this is also known as cardio-vocal syndrome. We experienced the case of a 81-year-old female suffering from hoarseness due to a large aneurysm of the aortic arch, and reviews the literature for possible cardiovascular causes of Ortner's syndrome.
