Abstract

Esophagopericardial fistulas are rare. Most reported cases are related to malignancy or prior surgical intervention. We report a case of an esophagopericardial fistula presenting as pneumopericardium and purulent pericarditis in a patient with a history of caustic ingestion and an esophageal stent.
