Aortoesophageal fistula is a rare, frequently fatal, cause of upper gastrointestinal bleeding, and there are few reported survivors of it. We report a successful surgical case of aortoesophageal fistula associated with an infective thoracic aortic aneurysm. The patient had been diagnosed as having an esophageal diverticulum 8 months before admission. The aortoesophageal fistula was completely resected, followed by esophagojejunum anastomosis and patch closure for the entry of the aneurysm and omental coverage to the wall of the descending aorta in one stage. In this case, esophageal diverticulum was diagnosed before the development of an aortoesophageal fistula associated with an aneurysm.
