Abstract

Fistula formation between the bronchi and peritoneal cavity is extremely rare. In previous reports, fistulas have occurred secondary to thoraco-abdominal trauma, subphrenic abscess, suppurative biliary tract obstruction, malignancy and iatrogenically through procedures such as biliary surgery or percutaneous biliary drainage. The direction of fistula formation has always been thought to be from the peritoneal cavity to the bronchi: there are no reports of a fistula with a bronchial origin. This case report presents a patient who presented with sepsis and a bronchoperitoneal fistula and pneumoperitoneum secondary to lung abscess.
