AGUILAR, Cecilia et al. Fístula broncobiliar congénita detectada por colescintigrafía. Rev. gastroenterol. Perú [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.2, pp. 216-218. ISSN 1022-5129.
A case of a six-year-old female patient diagnosed with congenital bronchobiliary fistula is presented. Only 20 cases have been reported in the literature of this disease in this institution. The patient showed signs and symptoms of a respiratory illness from birth that complicated progressively. She was submitted to multiple imaging studies like chest X rays, CT, ultrasound and Tc-99m HIDA cholescintigraphy. This procedure confirmed the presence of a bronchobiliary fistula that was corrected by surgery, with subsequent improvement of clinical symptoms.
