PEREZ, Cinthia G  and  REUSMANN, Aixa. Congenital broncho-biliary fistula: A case report. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2016, vol.114, n.5, pp.e350-e353. ISSN 0325-0075.

Congenital tracheo-or-bronchobiliary fistula or congenital he-patopulmonary fistula is a rare malformation with high morbidity and mortality if the diagnosis is not made early. The tracheo-or-bronchobiliary fistula is a communication between the respiratory (trachea or bronchus) and biliary tract. To date, only 35 cases have been published worldwide. We report a case of a neonate with right pneumonia and bilious fluid in the endotracheal tube. Diagnosis was made using bronchoscopy with fluoroscopy. Videothoracoscopy was used to remove the bronchobiliary fistula. Subsequently, a left he-patectomy with Roux-en-Y biliary-digestive anastomosis was performed as bile ductus hypoplasia was present.

Keywords : Bronchobiliary fistula; Persistent cough; Biliary fluid.
