Gastropleural fistula is an uncommon condition which can be induced by a trauma, gastroesophagectomy, subphrenic abscess, malignancy, and or hiatal hernia. In the patient with a predisposing factor, gastropleural fistula must be considered when pneumothorax, pyothorax, hemothorax, or food materials in the chest tube is detected. Diagnosis can be confirmed by an esophagogastrogram or endoscopy. The prognosis is often very poor with conservative care needed, along with a fistulectomy reguiring repair of orifice. We experienced a case of gastropleural fistula treated by endoscopic injection of Histoacryl and report it here with a review of related literature.(Korean J Gastrointest Endosc 18: 737-741, 1998)
Key Words: Gastropleutral fistula , Histoacryl , Endoscopic treatment
