Abstract

Aortoesophageal fistula (AEF) formation nearly always results in catastrophic consequences. As a result of its development being extremely rare, many may never consider it in their differential. Although prognosis is extremely grim, early diagnosis and intervention is considered the optimal means to enhance one's prognosis. We present a case of AEF formation secondary to a Stanford B aortic dissection, along with a review of literature and terminology involved in describing such pathology.
