Case :
An 69-year-old male presented to the outpatient clinic with a decades-long history of cough with expectoration immediately after taking food, especially liquids.

Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy showed a fistulous opening in the mid esophagus without any evidence of malignancy, granulomatous disease or any other acquired basis for the fistula (Fig. 1C), although bronchoscopy showed edema of the right lower bronchus and failed to show the fistula. Esophagography confirmed the presence of a bronchoesophageal fistula (Fig. 1D).....
