Abnormal fistulous communications between the esophagus and respiratory tract are life-threatening conditions which need to be diagnosed at the earliest and managed appropriately. Bronchoesophageal fistula (BEF) is a rare endoscopic finding. It is commonly due to esophageal malignancy in adults, benign etiologies being very rarely encountered during endoscopy. In this case report, we discuss a BEF arising from a mid-esophageal diverticulum, which presented with recurrent hematemesis.
