Acquired bronchoesophageal fistula (BEF) and tracheoesophageal fistula are rare disorders that result from medical disease or secondary to a complication of a procedure, most commonly due to the prolonged high-pressure endotracheal or tracheostomy cuffs in the presence of nasogastric tube in the esophagus. Rarely, esophageal injuries can result in BEF; presentation is usually after 1 week of the procedure, and the treatment is esophageal stenting or clips in the early phase, and failure will need definitive surgical management. Here, we present our case of a complex BEF post laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy that required endoscopic and surgical management. This is a case report and literature review.
