In this case report, we describe a patient with a history of
fallopian tube adenocarcinoma who had an infusion port in place for the
past 4 years. During the course of her stay in the hospital for
pneumonia, she developed a cough that became worse with the infusion of
fluids through the port. A portogram done to investigate this problem
revealed the presence of a portobronchial fistula. This is the first
reported case of a portobronchial fistula. Various possibilities to
explain the formation of portobronchial fistula are discussed.
