Oesophageal-Pleural Fistula: A Rare Complication of Blunt Thoracic Injury

Abstract

Traumatic perforation of the oesophagus secondary to blunt trauma is a very rare clinical entity and is still associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. This is due to the fact that diagnosis in most cases is delayed and symptoms and signs are often masked by or attributed to more common blunt thoracic injuries. Early clinical suspicion and imaging is important for case management to achieve a good outcome.
