A case of accidental bronchial perforation by the metal stylet of a silastic feeding tube is reported. The misplacement of the feeding tube resulted in a pneumothorax. This is a previously unreported complication of enteral feeding in adults. Pulmonary complications of enteral feeding and recommendations for prevention of these complications are discussed.
