Abstract

Lye ingestion is a rare cause of an aortoesophageal fistula (AEF). We report a case of a 75-year-old woman with an AEF due to lye ingestion. Since an endoscopy cannot be engaged into the esophagus due to orifice stricture, we adopted computed tomography (CT) as a diagnostic tool. An AEF was confirmed by surgery.
