A 9-year-old male child presented with features of recurrent episodes of pneumonia. Following administration of different types of antibiotics, resolution of pneumonia was not complete. Antituberculous drugs were given on two occasions for sufficient period of time without any improvement. Following admission, history of a choking sensation during taking food pointed to perform barium swallow examination of oesophagus which revealed the diagnosis of tracheo-oesophageal fistula.
