We ­report a ­case of aor­toe­soph­geal fis­tula sec­on­dary to the aneu­rysm of the ­descending tho­racic ­aorta. The ­patient pre­sented ­with mas­sive hem­a­tem­esis ­with ­bright red ­blood. ­Patient was oper­ated ­upon emer­gently and sur­vived ­without com­pli­ca­tion. Six ­other ­such ­cases ­with suc­cessful out­come ­have ­been ­reported ­before, ­which ­depends on the ­prompt diag­nosis and ­early sur­gical inter­ven­tion.
