H-type tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is extremely rare in infants and children, and clinical manifestations of this condition are diverse based on its severity. Some cases of congenital TEF diagnosed in adulthood have been reported, which indicate the difficulty of early diagnosis of this disease. Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) may induce chronic aspiration, pulmonary aspiration, apparent life-threatening events, and failure to thrive....

We experienced a case of the esophageal atresia with proximal tracheoesophageal fistula in a 1-day old male patient who was transferred from an obstetric clinic due to respiratory distress soon after birth.

Esophageal atresia occurs once in 3000-4500 live births. These anomalies are thought to arise from defective differentiation of the primitive foregut into trachea and esophagus. defective growth of entodermal cells leading to atresia and an incomplete fusion of the lateral walls of the foregut to form a tracheoesophageal fistula. A full-term male baby was admitted to Guro Hospital with chief complaints of respiratory difficulty, chocking,...

Tracheoesophageal fistula is rare congenital anomaly. A 3 days old female infant was admitted to our department of pediatrics because of mild dyspnea, vomiting and dehydration. T-E fistula was suspected by simple chest X-ray after insertion of the rubber catheter into the esophagus and confirmed by esophagogram with Dionosil. Total correction was promptly performed but 9 days later, gastrostomy was done because of leakage at the...
