Abstract

Lymphoma is an unusual cause of tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). Most fistulas develop after radiation therapy and are a rare occurrence in patients treated with chemotherapy alone. The presence of a TEF is usually indicative of active lymphoma. This report describes a tracheoesophageal fistula that developed during chemotherapy for diffuse large cell lymphoma.
