Abstract

Tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) without associated esophageal atresia (EA) is a rare congenital anomaly.  Most of the children are treated for episodes of pneumonia prior to definitive diagnosis.  A 5 months infant presented with recurrent pneumonia and diagnosis of H type TEF was made with contrast esophagram.
