Extrinsic oesophageal compression from vascular structures usually remains asymptomatic. Occurrence of dysphagia is an uncommon problem. We present a rare case of dysphagia lusoria from right sided aortic arch presenting as pill-induced oesophagitis caused by a testosterone pill. A thorough literature review on both the conditions is then presented to address pathogenesis, diagnosis, and management.
