Ann Thorac Surg. 1990 Mar;49(3):500-5. doi: 10.1016/0003-4975(90)90274-a.


Congenital bronchoesophageal fistula is a rare anomaly that normally appears in adult life. Because of a recent case, we reviewed the literature on this lesion. There have been several reviews in the past but none has included all cases. The largest review included only two thirds of the cases (1966). Including our case, the number of reported cases is 100.
