Abstract: The Aorto pulmonary window is a small space between the aortic arch and pulmonary artery that is visible in the lateral chest radiography which contains ligamentum arteriosum, recurrent laryngeal nerve, lymph nodes and fat tissue. Although rare, enlargement of lymph nodes in Aorto pulmonary window can be found in patients with granulomatous diseases (like tuberculosis, sarcoidosis), malignancy and in metastatic diseases. An enlarged Aorto pulmonary lymph node is a rare cause of chest pain mimicking angina. Here we are presenting a case of a 28yrs old female patient who presented with chest pain, shortness of breath, and palpitation who on further detailed investigation revealed a case of pulmonary TB with an unusual presentation of lymph node in aorto pulmonary window causing obstruction of bilateral pulmonary arteries. Due to rarity and difficulties in diagnosing case has been reported.
