Abstract

  Acquired trachea-esophageal fistula is rare and is mainly described in the adult population as a result of trauma, corrosive ingestion, foreign body, inflammatory process, or malignancy. Endotracheal cuff-related acquired trachea-esophageal fistula already reported in literature. Here we report a unusual case of tracheostomy tube cuff related trachea-esophageal fistula with a history of persistent cough and dysphagia over a period of months. She ultimately underwent fistula repair.
