Bronchoesophageal fistulas (BEF) are uncommon in children, the etiology being congenital or acquired. Acquired bronchial perforation of tuberculous origin is common in children with pulmonary tuberculosis but bronchoesophageal perforation secondary to tuberculosis and leading to a fistulous tract formation is rare [1]. To date, there have only been 4 case reports of BEF of tuberculous origin in children [1]. We present yet another case of an acquired BEF of tuberculous origin in a child who presented with a sudden onset of dysphagia and choking sensation.
