Eso­phag­o­pleural fis­tula (EPF) is a ­very ­rare and ­fatal dis­ease. A 56 ­year-old man devel­oped a pyo­thorax ­resulting ­from an EPF ­with esoph­a­geal diver­tic­ulum ­after a ­right pneu­mo­nec­tomy. The ­patient was suc­cess­fully ­treated ­with a ­three-­stage oper­a­tion and con­trol of infec­tion and nutri­tional ­status. ­First, fen­es­tra­tion was per­formed, ­then an ­ante-tho­racic gas­tro­plasty, and a rad­ical tho­rac­o­plasty was per­formed. Sur­gical man­age­ment, nutri­tional sup­port, and con­trol of infec­tion ­were the cor­ner­stones of the treat­ment of EPF.
