Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A medically unit elderly man who had documented healing of a gastrocolic fistula with conservative measures only is described. Only 5 such cases have previously been reported. Closure without surgery is a rare event and, in this case, was most probably aided by withdrawal of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents.
