Abstract

Fistulas between the tracheobronchial tree and the esophagus (TE fistula) caused by tuberculosis are rare; usually they are associated with readily apparent pulmonary and/or mediastinal infection, and require surgical management. The patient described presented with a TE fistula as the only manifestation of active tuberculosis. This case represents the first report of successful nonsurgical treatment of tuberculous TE fistulas.
