Abstract

Primary aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) in the absence of prosthetic graft replacement or aortic endovascular therapy can develop as a rare but life-threatening complication of acute aortic dissection. This case demonstrates that primary AEF should be maintained on the clinical differential of a patient presenting with massive gastrointestinal bleed in the context of an aortic dissection.
