Abstract

Bronchobiliary fistula is defined as the passage of bile in the bronchi. The presence of bronchobiliary fistula in patient with cirrhosis is extremely rare. Management of these fistulas is often very difficult and can be associated with high morbidity and mortality. We are presenting a patient with ethanol related cirrhosis and biliptysis in whom a diagnosis of bronchobiliary fistula was made. A review of the literature including diagnosis and management is performed.
