Thoracic aortic aneurysm with fistulization into the trachea or the esophagus is usually a lethal complication. An unusual case of combined aortotracheal and aortoesophageal fistulae is presented here. The patient had a successful outcome after resection of the aneurysm with tracheal repair and esophageal resection. A review of literature on this subject is also included in this manuscript.
