A 54-year-old ­woman under­went a ­left pneu­mo­nec­tomy for mono­lat­eral con­gen­ital pul­mo­nary ­cysts, com­pli­cated by a ­pleural ­empyema ­without bron­chial fis­tula, in the ­late post­op­er­a­tive ­period. The ­pleural ­empyema was evac­u­ated and man­aged by ­means of a ­small tho­racic ­drainage. ­Three ­months ­after dis­charge the ­patient ­noticed the pres­ence of ­ingesta in the ­pleural ­washing ­fluid. Diag­nostic and oper­a­tive pro­ce­dures in ­this ­rare ­case of non malig­nant, non trau­matic gas­tro­pleural fis­tula are ­described.
