abstract

  • We report two patients with bronchoesophageal fistulae resulting from benign causes. The first resulted from erosion of an acquired middle esophageal diverticulum. The second had the prolonged clinical course of a presumed congenital fistula. The importance of barium examinations in evaluating chronic respiratory complaints is emphasized.
