A 74-year-old female patient, complaining of difficulty in swallowing and recurring cough, after diagnosis of esophageal diverticular bronchoesophageal fistula with a broncho-pneumonia abiogenetic pulmonary mass, was treated surgically by lower left lobectomy, associated with resection of the esophageal diverticulum. In conclusion, we agree completely with other authors in the literature that surgical intervention is the treatment of choice for non-neoplastic bronchoesophageal fistula.
