INTRODUCTION: Congenital esophageal atresia and/or tracheoesophageal fistula occur in 1 in 4,500 births, and may cause multiple complications, even when repaired early in life. Delayed diagnosis is rare, especially in the adult, but usually presents with worsening pulmonary symptons such as recurrent pneumonia, aspiration, tracheomalacia and asthma.
